Dairy Free Creamy Cucumber Salad: Summer Side Dish Recipe

It can’t be summer without cucumber salad!  Since going dairy-free I’ve been making cucumber salad sans dairy but my husband really misses the kind his grandma makes with sour cream.  I had a tub of plain coconut yogurt in my fridge and decided to experiment.  Here’s the result! Because the salad is naturally a little sweet, the yogurt works really well as a creamy substitute. I like this salad best after it’s been sitting in the fridge overnight.

I’ll probably be making this a few times in the next few weeks – I’m swimming in cucumbers! I’ve picked 14 in the last week and have about 7 more that need to be picked today.  We’ve been slicing and eating them plain every day with lunch and dinner so this is a nice change.
