Dill Cucumber Salad

A lot of cucumber salads feature a heavy coating of mayonnaise-based dressing. This lighter version adds a lot of flavor, without overwhelming the cucumber. If you prefer a thicker dressing, cut down on the amount of lemon juice in the dressing.

Tip: Prepare the dressing advance, if possible, to give the flavours more time to develop.
