Recipe Notes

  • For a little spice, add some crushed red pepper flakes or a pinch of cayenne.
  • Slice the cucumbers on a cutting board with a sharp knife or use a mandoline food slicer.
  • For even more flavor, use seasoned salt.
  • Not a fan of sour cream? Use light mayonnaise or Greek yogurt.
  • Store the cucumber salad in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to three days.

Here's how to make it:

  1. Put the cucumber slices into a bowl. Sprinkle them with the salt. Let them sit about 5 minutes and then pat with paper towels to remove moisture. 
  2. Add the onions. Drizzle with the vinegar. Add the sour cream until desired creaminess is achieved. Season with pepper, if desired. Chill until ready to serve.

I remember my mom making this when growing up and I liked it ...I've tried to make it myself and have never been able to recreate it successfully and wound up never liking my version of it. Will try again using this recipe. Thanks for posting
