Creamy Cucumber Salad with Dill

Today i am making this delicious Creamy Cucumber Salad with Dill in honor of Daniel from The Haggis and The Herring food blog.  Daniel was part of the Secret Recipe Club and suddenly passed away.  In honor of him we decided to have a little tribute and make something from his food blog.   Daniel had so many good recipe but i decided to go simple and delicious.  Something that i would eat all the time.  This Creamy Cucumber Salad is one of those recipe, it very similar to my Polish Cucumber Salad, but you can not go wrong here.

It is with great sadness that Daniel is no longer here, and i would like to share his wife’s eulogy and tribute post that you have to read.  It will bring tears to your eyes
