Spring this year is late to blossom. We had a little bit of a tease by mother nature in a February with some 75 degree days. We actually spent one weekend at the beach and the girls were in the ocean. It last for about a week and then mother nature decided to take a dip back into freezing temperatures at night. Even the trees and flowers are confused by it all in Charlotte. I refuse to let those temperatures determine when I can break out the Spring flavors though.
Over the last couple of months, I've partnered with Crunchmaster crackers to bring you some of my favorite recipes that are helping me become a "fit master". I've had some ups and downs sticking to my fitness and eating goals, but I love that Crunchmaster helps me stick to my goals. Not only do they taste great and have a diverse range of flavors, but they're certified gluten-free. Crunchmaster crackers are down to Earth, just like you.
This cucumber dip recipe with feta made with Greek yogurt, low fat sour cream and feta as your base is a healthier option then most dip recipes which consist of sour cream or cream cheese. Once you throw in the grated cucumber and minced red onion you have the perfect Spring flavors. The garnish though is definitely key! The pomegranate pearls burst with sweetness in every bite so that the dip is never overpowering. I need to start garnishing more often with pomegranate pearls.
Speaking of pomegranate pearls, did you know that most grocery stores sell them as pearls already removed from the fruit?! I don't know about you, but I despise getting each little pearl from the pomegranate fruit. It was a dream come true when I found pomegranate pearls in the refrigerated section at my grocery store.
Since I'm all about things being simple I wanted to make sure to make grating the cucumber for the dip as simple as possible.
Cucumber Dip Tips for grating cucumbers
- Be sure to wash and take one end off of your cucumber before beginning to grate it.
- Choose a seedless cucumber to avoid having to dig out the seeds.
- When grating your cucumber be sure to tap the grater lightly to get off the excess cucumber stuck to the back of it.
- Place the grated cucumbers in a colander over the sink and lightly salt. Let sit for 20 minutes and it will remove most of the moisture from the cucumbers.
- Be sure to squeeze any excess water for the grated cucumber so that you do not thin out your dip.
- You can use a clean dish towel to squeeze out the excess water.
