Dill Cucumber Salad with Honey & Sour Cream

With the nicer weather upon us, BBQing is going to be more and more frequent. We enjoy grilling all summer long and look forward to entertaining guests in our yard. To mix things up I like to offer a variety of salads for our guests to choose from. Same when we are invited to a BBQ. I usually opt in to bringing a salad. Something a bit different from the usual. Something light, fresh and full of flavour. This Dill Cucumber Salad with honey and sour cream salad that my oldest recently made is perfect to have on its own or as a side. Made with summer fresh cucumbers it will be a great addition to any backyard Barbecue.
