Dill Salad
2 large, or 3 smaller English cucumbers, peeled and diced
3 T. finely chopped dill
¼ cup red onion, minced (optional)

Creamy Yogurt "like" Sauce:
½ cup raw macadamia nuts, pre-soaked
½ cup pine nuts
½ cup water
2 T. lemon juice
1-2 cloves of garlic
½ - 1 tsp. sea salt


In a Vitamix, blend all sauce ingredients until completely smooth.
*The sauce should be thick, because when you stir it into the salad, the water from the cucumber will thin it out.

For the Salad:
In a mixing bowl, pour yogurt like sauce over the cucumber, dill and onion.
Stir so that everything is evenly coated.
Serve chilled as a side dish, or eat as is.
