  • 2 cups dairy-free sour cream I use Forager or plain unsweetened coconut yogurt*
  • 1 large cucumber diced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh dill
  • 2 –3 garlic cloves minced*
  • 1 teaspoon salt more or less to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon cracked black pepper
  • 1/2 lemon juiced
  • Optional: 1 tablespoon olive oil


Chunky Version:

  • Dice or grate the cucumbers and pat dry with a paper towel. If you are using grated cucumbers, add to a cheesecloth and squeeze out any additional moisture over the sink. I used diced cucumbers in my chunky version.
  • Simply add all the ingredients to a large mixing bowl and mix together until combined.

Smooth Version:

  • Dice the cucumbers and pat down with a paper towel to remove additional moisture. In a food processor, add the cucumbers, garlic, lemon juice, dill, black pepper, and salt. Process until well blended. Stir this mixture along with the 1 tablespoon olive oil into sour cream or Greek yogurt.


  • If you are not Paleo, feel free to use plain Greek Yogurt in place of the DF sour cream.
  • I use 2 8 oz. containers of Forager Sour Cream.
  • This will keep for a few days in the refrigerator, but you will need to drain off any water and stir each time you use it.
  • Chunky Version: If you don’t like the cucumbers super chunky, feel free to grate them instead of dicing them.
  • Depending on how garlicky you like the sauce will depend on how many garlic cloves you use. I used 3, but if you don't like it that strong, just use 2.
