Winter has already disappeared here and we’ve been enjoying white and pink blossomed trees for a few weeks. We can finally go out just with a T-shirt and I love it! I love a lot of other things indeed when winter’s gone. I feel renewed and have more energy for everything including cooking and baking. It’s the freshness time of year again, so something fresh on the dinner table gives everyone a similar feeling. Cucumber Yogurt Feta Dip is made exactly for this purpose and it completes the mission successfully!
Cucumber is one of those vegetables that are reminiscent of freshness, so we have it very often in summer. Sometimes we can’t wait and start earlier with this so tasty and refreshing cucumber yogurt feta dip. Feta inside yogurt makes it more
We can have cucumber at any time of day when it’s in season. It is like a must in a typical Turkish breakfast along with sliced tomatoes. The fresh scent of cucumber in the morning definitely has a stimulating effect on me!
One of our most popular cucumber dishes is Cacik, which is a wonderful combination of cucumber, yogurt and garlic. We have it as a side dish in summer. It goes wonderfully with with Easy Meatballs with Potatoes. The other one is Shepherd’s Salad, which is a tangy salad mostly paired with kebabs. Actually I don’t need anything to pair with these, I love to have them as a snack too.
This cucumber yogurt feta dip is my third favorite. If you love to snack on chips with a dip sauce when watching a movie, I’m 100% sure that you will love this healthy cucumber treat.
You should slice cucumbers very thinly to give them a look of chips. Make them stand on the yogurt dip vertically and dip cucumber slices into the yogurt dip when eating. Enjoy!
I’m so much intrigued by these Cucumber Canapes and I will try it soon. Go check it if you love recipes with this refreshing vegetable!
