SIDE NOTES:

~ Was inspired to concoct this after a friend shared her version with us on a recent camping trip (Thx Lynn!). It’s great as a dip for any type of raw veggie – especially fresh, juicy, cherry tomatoes!

~  For a thicker version, if you’d like, before mixing in the cucumbers, set them in a strainer & sprinkle with plenty of salt. Let sit for a little while (about 15 – 30 mins) & then press with a clean cloth or paper towels to remove the excess moisture.  But this step is not necessary.

 For those avoiding certain foods, this recipe falls into the following categories:

Dairy Free, Gluten Free, Egg Free, Nut Free, Sugar Free, Vegan, Grain Free, Raw

I recommend using real yogurt, but you can substitute a non-dairy version if need be.
