This is an easy and delicious recipe to make when you have an overload of garden-fresh cucumbers, I use cherry tomatoes sliced in half since I have an abundance of them from my garden, and I use wine vinegar for this but regular white vinegar will do just fine! You might prefer a sweeter dressing so adjust the sugar and vinegar to taste. I have even added in some small broccoli and/or cauliflower florets to this.

Ingredients Nutrition

I love this salad but I found if you salt the cucumbers lightly and let them set about 30 minutes then take a paper towel and squeeze them a little bit the cucumbers don't have as much juice which makes the sauce thinner. It really does work, try it.

I added my favorite new ingredient - ground white pepper. Also removed the pulpy seed areas of the tomato. Also used a light sour cream as it doesn't hurt to reduce calories.

Woke up this morning with a craving for something I'd never had; creamy tomato-cucumber salad. This certainly hit the spot.
I was a little doubtful when seeing the ingredients for the dressing (mainly the sugar and vinegar) but it worked quite nicely. To lower calories a bit, I used 1/2 cup yogurt, and only a 1/4 cup sour cream to total the 3/4 needed for a half recipe. The garlic powder I had also contained parsley, but it tasted really nice with the yogurt sauce. The one thing I may change for next time is to leave the dill out. It seemed a bit unnecessary, and I don't really care for the flavour of dill anyway...but I did leave out the onions, so that may have something to do with it.
Thanks for the recipe, Kittencal!
