Last summer, my great friend Emily made a vegetable dip for a party and I. could. not. get enough! Everyone was talking about it and I knew I had to have this recipe. It was garlicky, creamy and super addictive. The ingredient that set it off for me was dill weed.
I couldn’t remember the last time I had used dill and vowed to remedy that ASAP. Besides making this dip, which of course I did, I wanted to find another way to use dill in a quick veggie side dish.
I’m really wishing the weather were a bit warmer today, but since that’s not happening, I’m going to make a light side dish that reminds me of fresh cucumbers in the summer. Cucumbers and dill are a classic combination. I love that this is creamy, packed with flavor, uses only a few ingredients and comes together in just a couple of minutes.
Thinly slice a cucumber.
Add the sour cream, dill and garlic to a bowl and combine.
Slowly add the cucumbers and combine, making sure each side of the cucumbers are coated. Thin with a little milk if necessary. I didn’t feel I needed any this time, but have in the past.
How yummy does this look?! It was super refreshing and had me dreaming of summer 🙂
This makes a great side dish and would be great for barbecues and parties since it’s quick, easy and like that veggie dip last summer…addictive!
- 1 cucumber
- 2 tbsp sour cream
- 1 tsp fresh dill (1/3 tsp dried dill)
- sprinkle garlic powder
Thinly slice the cucumber.
In a medium bowl, combine sour cream, dill and garlic powder. Add a little milk to thin out, if needed. (I didn't this time, but have in the past)
Slowly add the cucumbers to coat each side with the sour cream mixture.
Add salt and pepper to your liking.
TASTE! Adjust seasonings if you'd like. Maybe a little more garlic? 🙂
Chill for a couple of hours for best taste and enjoy!
This is a great make-ahead side dish and will keep nicely for a few days in the fridge.
