Perfect Pair: Cucumber Salad with Yogurt and Fresh Dill with Vina Eguia Blanco

Cucumber Salad Summer Yogurt
The Dish:  Cucumber Salad with Yogurt and Fresh Dill

The Recipe:

4 cucumbers, peeled, seeded and sliced
1 shallot, minced
½ cup Greek yogurt
2 tablespoons rice vinegar (available at Asian markets.  I use Marukan orange label.)
2 tablespoons fresh dill, picked and chopped
Fresh ground black pepper

Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl and mix thoroughly.  Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper and serve immediately or chill in advance.

The Pairing:  Vina Eguia Blanco

This wine has a vibrant and round mouthfeel with a pleasant finish.  So perfect for this time of year and goes lovely with this cucumber salad.  You'll find notes of pear, apple and citrus.  Grab your glass and pour!
