RECIPE: Cucumber And Sour Cream Salad

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Cucumber and Sour Cream Salad


1/2 teaspoon salt 1 scant tablespoon sugar 2 tablespoons cider vinegar 1 cup sour cream 2 tablespoons chopped chives 2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill 1 teaspoon celery seed 2 firm fresh cucumbers


1) Dissolve salt and sugar in vinegar, add the sour cream and stir smooth. You may like more or less vinegar, salt or sugar, but don't make dressing too sweet. Add the chives, dill and celery seed.

2) Slice cucumbers paper-thin and combine with dressing. Chill for 1 hour or more. Sour cream cucumbers improve in taste as they stand and flavor of cucumbers seeps into dressing. Yield: 4 to 6 servings.
