Creamy Cucumber Salad

Creamy Cucumber Salad created by GREG IN SAN DIEGO

What sets this cucumber salad aside is that salting and draining the cucumbers intinsifies their flavor and makes the salad less watery than many others I've made over the years.

ingredients

directions

  • Place cucumbers in a colander and toss with salt. Let stand until several tablespoons of liquid has drained, 30-45 minutes.
  • Pat dry with paper towels and transfer to a medium bowl.
  • Add onion, sour cream, vinegar, dill (or its substitute), pepper and sugar. Toss to coat.
  • Taste.
  • A little more sugar? Decide.
  • Serve and garnish with a little paprika. Serve well chilled, on chilled plates, over a bed of greens or kale, with a lemon or orange twist for presentation.

    Not impressed.. I wish the 30 min. drain time was mentioned in the prep time wich said it was only 15 min. Had a limited time. May be better if I would have had the time to prepare it to your specifications.

    This recipe works for me. Terrific with your fish and chips recipe. Yes, indeed, this is a keeper.
