This classic summer salad has a healthy twist that adds flavor and nutrients.

Sliced Cucumber Salad


  • For the Salad:
  • 2 (765 g) English cucumbers
  • 1 (400 g) white onion
  • For the Dressing:
  • 2 cups (480 g) Greek yogurt 0% plain [or non-dairy yogurt]
  • 1 bunch (15 g) fresh dill
  • ½ cup (70 g) raisins
  • 1 lemon, zested, peeled
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt, optional
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper


  1. For the Salad: Fit the Food Processor with the Thin Slicing Disc.
  2. Start the processor and, using the Food Pusher, feed the cucumbers and the onion through the Small Food Chute opening. If item is too large, cut to size and feed through the Large Food Chute opening. Remove to a separate bowl.  
  3. For the Dressing: Place the yogurt, dill, raisins, lemon, salt, and pepper into the Vitamix container and secure the lid. Start the blender on its lowest speed, then quickly increase to its highest speed. Blend for 30 seconds, using the tamper to push ingredients toward the blades.
  4. Mix the dressing with the cucumber/onion mixture and chill.   

Chef's Notes

  • Indulge in this refreshing cucumber salad. Cucumbers are a hydrating low-calorie, high-nutrient food.  This recipe calls for a Greek yogurt or a non-dairy yogurt for a lighter option than a traditional salad made with mayonnaise or sour cream.
