Cucumber & Sweet Onion Salad with Yogurt
Yet another great recipe from our CSA, Driftless Organics. I don’t know about you, but I am a major sucker for cucumbers. I can’t get enough of the things, and I’m going to be suffering from cucumber overload in just a few weeks. There are a ton growing on the vines in the garden and I’m sure this recipe is going to be referenced many times before the summer ends.

Although I am a big cucumber fan, I’ve always been wary about yogurt. I try and stay away from the stuff, but in the spirit of being a good sport and following the self inflicted rules of this CSA project, I decided to give it a whirl. Guys! It was so good and savory, I was totally blown away, my brain is already trying to think of new ways to incorporate greek yogurt into other parts of my diet. Plus the health benefits are tyte, and the calories are low. I’m all in.
