Prep Time: 30 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes


  • 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


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.
