Now that summer is here, there is lots of backyard bbq’s, pool party’s maybe even a family reunion and that means potlucks galore. 

You know there is going to be all sorts of salads and treats filled with sugar and all those extra carbs. You need to know there will be one salad that you can eat. 

This will be the one for sure. 

Okay I have had some okay and some absolutely horrible cucumber salads in my days. Most of the time they are so full of sugar and are so sweet that only a few mouthfuls and I am done. Yes you read that right a cucumber salad with sugar. 

A friend of mine from the keto community shared a recipe she made the other night and well I had to revamp to add my own spin on it. 

1 small sized sweet onion sliced very thin

5-6 small cucumbers or 2 large cut lengthway then sliced in ⅛” 

Place in a bowl

Sauce mix in a small bowl or measuring cup 

¼ cup full fat Greek Yogurt (in Alberta we have this stuff call Kerma so amazing extremely thick). 

1 ½ teaspoon of garlic powder or fresh garlic 

1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar

1 teaspoon lemon juice

3 drops Young Living Lemon Plus (vitality) essential oil for an extra punch (contact me to purchase)

1 teaspoon of sweetener (I used Lakanto) get here

2 sprigs of fresh dill chopped nice and small

Now add your sauce into the cucumber and onion mixture and place in the fridge to chill for 1-2 hours. 

While this is chilling 

Chop up one package of bacon. 

Fry it up until just about crispy. 

Place it on paper towel and place in fridge to cool. 

When time to eat place the salad in a bowl and add some crumbled bacon to the top. Mix in and enjoy. 

This was our dinner tonight and it hit the spot on a hot evening. It hit the spot and was perfect. We had it just like this but pairing it with a bbq burger or chicken would have made this all the more complete. 

Go and make this for your next meal.
