- 1 teaspoon dill seed
- 1 -2 drop hot pepper sauce

- Combine sour cream, sugar, dill seed, pepper sauce and pepper.

I had cukes & onion in vinegar before; and I had had cukes & onion in sour cream before, but never had I had them in this two-step process, which was made super quick with the help of a food processor. I did not have dill seeds, so I used minced dill weed which I did have on hand and the flavor was great. The bright flavor of this dish is wonderful! Thank you Luvin' Texas for a great dish. I will definitely make this again.
