Cucumber Dill Sour Cream Salad Recipe

A favorite way to serve cucumbers, especially when you have access to fresh dill is in this type of simple salad.


Serves 2-4 (depending on portion sizes)

1/2 cup thinly sliced white onions
2-3 Tablespoons white vinegar
3 cups thinly sliced peeled English cucumbers
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup sour cream
1 Tablespoon chopped fresh dill
1 Tablespoon white vinegar


Start by placing the sliced onions into a small bowl and pour vinegar over them and stir a little to be sure they are all covered. This is done to improve the taste of the onions. Let sit in the vinegar for about 15 minutes, then drain and throw out the vinegar.

*Note: If you are using a sweet onion, you can avoid this step.

Slice the cucumber into thin pieces in a large bowl.Sprinkle on the salt and let sit for five minutes then use a paper towel to pat the onions dry.

Add the onions and stir in.

In bowl, stir together the sour cream, dill and vinegar. Stir into the salad. Garnish with more dill if desired.
