Cucumber Dill Dressing

Making your own delicious salad dressing at home couldn't be easier! Plus it doesn't contain any strange ingredients that you can't even pronounce! I served this dressing with a big salad alongside my baked sweet potato falafel and it was the perfect summer meal! You could also use it as a dip for veggies or a sauce in wraps or pitas. This dressing is also vegan if you use non-dairy milk and use the optional vegan mayo.


1 medium cucumber, peeled and chopped
2-3 Tbsp. fresh dill, minced, or 1-2 tsp. dry
1 Tbsp. olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. black pepper
2 Tbsp. milk (soy, almond, or cow)
2 Tbsp. mayonnaise or Veganaise (optional - if you want a thicker, creamier dressing)


Combine all ingredients in a food processor or blender. Transfer into a sealable container and refrigerate. The dressing will thicken up as it cools in the fridge. Makes approx. 1 cup of salad dressing.
