Cucumber Dill Dressing

Cucumber Dill Dressing

Summer may be coming to an end, but it's not too late to take advantage of locally grown produce. This cooling blend of cucumber, yogurt, vinegar and fresh herbs turned out to be a most refreshing dressing to serve over fresh tomato and greens. It's also thick and creamy enough to serve as a vegetable dip if desired.
