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 flavors more time to develop.
