How to make low-carb creamy cucumber salad

Print this recipe
Cucumbers are the unsung heroes of the veggie drawer. They’re crisp and sweet with a mild flavor that pairs with any number of varied cuisines –Middle Eastern, Asian and European. You’ve probably got a cucumber in your fridge right now, and the recipe below is a tasty way to put it to use.
You can substitute low-fat sour cream or Greek-style yogurt for the sour cream if you like. Personally, I love the juxtaposition of the light, refreshing cucumber with the rich creaminess of the full-fat sour cream.
