Today's feature recipe is the winner of July's Creative Cook Contest! We hope you'll enjoy this as much as us. Congrats to Diet.com Member Ptypopsicl!
2 large cucumbers
1 large tomato
1/2 red onion
4 Tbsp light sour cream
4 Tbsp non-fat buttermilk
2 Tbsp lemon juice
2 Tbsp dried dill weed (or to taste)
Dash of ground nutmeg
1 Tbsp garlic powder (or to taste)
Salt and black pepper to taste
1 Mix the sour cream, buttermilk, lemon juice and spices in a mixing bowl or salad bowl. Add about 2-4 Tbsp water to thin it to the desired consistency. Set aside.
2 Cut the cucumbers in half lengthwise and scoop out the seeds. This will keep them from weeping, and also make them prettier. Slice the cucumbers about 1" thick. Add to the dressing.
3 Dice the tomato into large chunks and slice the onion into thin slices; add to the dressing.
4 Mix well and chill for 30 minutes or more - this is best served on the same day as you prepare it but will keep for a couple of days if needed.
