While trying to come up with appetizers for our Christmas party this year, I decided to make this simple, yet delicious cucumber yogurt dill dip on some slices of french bread, topped with a slice of cucumber. I originally tasted this dip at a friends place and decided to re-create it at home. I recommend making this dip the day prior to serving so that it thickens up a little in the fridge before spreading it on your favorite bread.
If you’re looking for something flavorful, light, and refreshing to serve, this recipe is the one!
CUCUMBER DIP: (gluten-free)
1 3/4 c yogurt
1/2 t salt
2 cloves garlic
2 t mint
2 t dill
2 t lemon juice
2 T olive oil
(note: this dip is best prepared 1 day in advance so that it has a chance to thicken in the refrigerator overnight)
- Peel cucumber and cut in four sections lengthwise. Discard the seeds from the cucumber.
- Blend all the ingredients together. Refrigerate until ready to use.
Cut French bread in small slices. Spread dip on bread, top with 1 slice cucumber, and serve.
For gluten-free options, this dip also goes well with fresh veggies and in sandwiches.[subscribe_box]
