  • ¼ red onion thinly sliced
  • 1 English cucumber
  • 1 cup shredded red cabbage
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • ¼ cup Greek Yogurt or sour cream
  • Juice of ½ lemon
  • ½ teaspoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  1. Place the red onion in small bowl and cover with cold water. Let it sit for about 5 minutes to make the onion less pungent, and then drain and dry the onion with paper towel.

  2. Cut the cucumber into matchsticks by making thin diagonal slices across the cucumber and then cut each slice into sticks.
  3. Combine the cucumber, shredded cabbage, red onion, olive oil, Greek yogurt, lemon juice, sugar, fresh dill and salt in a bowl. Stir well and then season with freshly ground black pepper. Chill until ready to use.
