Cucumbers & Sour Cream
A Karen Danielson recipe from the Sneaky Kitchen
2 large cucumbers, peeled & sliced
1 tsp. salt, see directions
1 large Vidalia onion, peeled & thinly sliced
1 T. fresh chives, snipped
1 C. light sour cream
ground black pepper, to taste
Peel & slice cucumbers into a bowl. Sprinkle with the teaspoon of salt, mix together well
& then transfer cucumbers to a wire mesh strainer & suspend
strainer over the bowl. The salt will draw the water out of the cucumbers so your salad will not end up like cucumber "soup".
Remember, where salt goes, water follows! Allow salted cucumbers to drain in wire mesh strainer for about 30 minutes, then rinse with water
thoroughly. Return cucumbers to bowl & add remaining ingredients.
After tasting, add more salt if necessary. Serve well chilled!
