Make Dill Cucumber Salad a little Healthier!

When it’s hot outside, cooking and heating up the house is one of the last things I want to do. Many opt for cold cereal or sandwiches, but my family isn’t a big fan of either one. We do love a cold Dill Cucumber Salad though!

I like to prep this recipe in the morning and let the flavors develop for a more flavorful dinner. This dish can be used as a main entree or a side dish. It pairs nicely with grilled chicken. You can even marinate the chicken along with the vegetables.

If you have a garden, picking fresh vegetables for your salad is such a blessing! If not, stop by your local farmer’s market or roadside stand to pick up veggies for the freshest flavor.
