Sarasota's Cucumber Tomato Salad in a Creamy Dill Sauce

Sarasota's Cucumber Tomato Salad in a Creamy Dill Sauce created by SarasotaCook

Classic and nothing fancy, but a great summertime salad. Growing up in Michigan, we always had a big garden, as well as tons of tomatoes. This became one of my favorite salads. Now, my Mom used to make it with sour cream back in the days ... but nowadays, I use plain yogurt which I think makes it a bit lighter. However, you can still use sour cream or even a mix of the two if you prefer.

  • Dressing -- Mix the yogurt, shallot. garlic, sugar, salt and pepper in a small bowl and set to the side.
  • Salad -- In a medium bowl add the cucumbers and tomatoes. Now, if you can't find a seedless cucumber, use a "regular" cucumber and lightly seed it. .
  • Add the dressing to the salad along with the fresh dill and toss lightly.
  • Serve -- I love to serve mine over a bed of fresh greens and broiled fish on the side. ENJOY!

    I used half sour cream, half yogurt. I liked the flavor the shallot gave it, but found it a little tart. DH liked it. probably won't make again

    Shopping for ingred to make this (in groc store) and I saw a new prod. OPA by LItehouse in the produce area. It's a greek yogurt feta dill dressing that may suffice in a rush to make this dish. I don't like choosing processed foods over natural ingredients like yours, but is a quick option for those looking for an even shorter cut.

    This salad is very fresh and light, just what I wanted to balance out a meal of grilled barbecue pork ribs. I do like more tang in my dressing, so I prefer to add a little vinegar or lemon juice. Very good!

    I used fresh heirloom ugly ripe tomatoes and a tasty cucumber. Followed directions to a T. Made the dressing portion about 9 hours before serving, so it had plenty of time for the flavors to come together, however the final salad was kind of bland in my opinion. All I could taste was the yogurt. Served it to 5 adults and no one finished the serving on their plate. I have had these types of salads before and enjoyed them though. Thanks for posting.
