    GaylaJ's Note:

    I find both cucumbers and fresh dill to be especially refreshing when it's hot outside, so I think this light-tasting dish makes a great side during the heat of summer. Adapted from Cooking Light.

      Pleasantly light and cool, but nothing to write home about. I agree with NovaM that it needs more salt and more something else. It's a bit bland as is, and I'm unlikely to make it again.

      This was easy to make and VERY light & refreshing salad. We'll be making it again this coming weekend!

      A very easy and tasty salad to put together - I did need to add a little more salt, though. I think if I was to make this again, I might add some feta for a bit of extra flavour.
