Summer time potluck meals in Appalachia always have a least one bowl of Creamy Cucumber Salad on the table.
The salad couldn’t be easier to make. You need:
- 1 cup of sour cream
- 1 tablespoon of lemon juice
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon dill weed
- 2 1/2 cups peeled sliced cucumbers
- 1 cup sliced onion
Mix sour cream, lemon juice, pepper, salt, and dill weed together in a small bowl.
Place cucumbers and onions in a serving bowl. You can complete the recipe up to this point-if you’re trying to get ahead. Separating the dressing from the cukes and onions until closer to serving time keeps the salad from being too watery.
I like to mix my cucumber salad at least 2 hours before serving-so that the ingredients can marry (as The Deer Hunter says).
Creamy Cucumber Salad-easy, tasty, and refreshing on a hot summer day.
