Prep Time: 30 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 cucumber
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 T. white wine vinegar
  • 4 oz. sour cream
  • 2 tsp. oil
  • 1 tsp. sugar
  • Pepper
  • 2 T. chopped dill, or to taste

Preparation:

Peel the cucumber unless it is an English cucumber or other kind which you don't have to peel. Slice the cucumber thin. This is best done with a mandolin or food processor. Place the slices in a colander, salt and toss. Let the slices drain for 20 - 30 minutes.

Mix the dressing ingredients (vinegar through dill) in a separate bowl. Add drained cucumber and stir to coat. Serve chilled.
