Cucumber Dill & Onion Salad

This is a refreshing summer salad, very low in calories

1 Large Cucumber (with peel)
1/2 Medium Red Onion, Fresh
1 Tablespoon Salt - don't worry, it will be rinsed
3 Tablespoons Plain Nonfat Greek yogurt
2 Tablespoons Fresh Dill Weed finely minced
1/2 Teaspoon Fresh Ground Black Pepper
1/2 Cup Cider Vinegar

Slice the cucumber and onion into very thin slices. I find a mandolin slicer works best. Sprinkle with 1 tablespoon of salt and refrigerate for a half hour. While it's chilling mix the remaining ingredients in a small bowl. When the cucumbers a thoroughly chilled, rinse the salt off with cold water. The salt will draw out the moisture out of the cucumbers and make them very crisp. Toss the cucumbers and onions with the dressing and serve.

Makes 4 1-cup servings.
