Cucumber Herb Dip
2 cups finely chopped or grated seeded peeled cucumber

1/4 cup chopped red onion
Greens of 2 green onion chopped fine

1 garlic clove, minced or pressed
Â¼ -1/2 cup sour cream (I used 1/4 cup plain kefir)
1 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp lime juice
1/4 tsp ground cumin
Â½ tsp sea salt
Remove seeds from cucumber, chop fine, put in colander and add Â¼ teaspoon salt. Let rest for 10 minutes to drain juice. Use paper towel to get excess moisture out.
In a small bowl, combine the first seven ingredients. In another bowl, combine the sour cream, lemon juice, lime juice, cumin and remaining salt. Pour over cucumber mixture and toss gently to coat.
Serve immediately or chill. Serve with chips or can be used to top a pita pocket, fish or chicken. Tastes similar to Tzatziki sauce
This is a real winner, donÂ´t you think ? I love herbs and i can almost smell this sauce, when iÂ´m closing my eyes and imagine sitting on my patio with a big bowl of yummie salad…:-)
