  • 2 large cucumbers, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup fresh dill, chopped
  • A “dollop” (about a 1/4 cup) of fat free plain Greek yogurt (regular yogurt is fine but this is what I had)
  • 2 tablespoons red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup or agave nectar
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Prepare the Dressing:
    • In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, apple cider vinegar, lemon juice, Dijon mustard, maple syrup or agave nectar, and a pinch of salt and pepper until well combined. Set aside.
  2. Slice the Cucumbers:
    • Wash the cucumbers thoroughly under cold running water.
    • Using a sharp knife or a mandoline slicer, thinly slice the cucumbers into rounds. Alternatively, you can use a vegetable peeler to create ribbons.
  3. Combine Ingredients:
    • In a large mixing bowl, combine the sliced cucumbers, chopped dill, and finely chopped red onion.
  4. Toss with Dressing:
    • Pour the prepared dressing over the cucumber mixture in the bowl.
    • Gently toss the ingredients together until the cucumbers are evenly coated with the dressing.
  5. Chill and Serve:
    • Cover the bowl with plastic wrap or a lid and refrigerate the salad for at least 30 minutes to allow the flavors to meld together.
    • Once chilled, give the salad a final toss and adjust the seasoning if necessary.
    • Serve the Vegan Cucumber Dill Salad chilled as a refreshing side dish or accompaniment to your favorite main course.
