My Grandma's Cool Cucumber Salad

Cooking Recipes Catalogue

This is a very simple recipe from one of the best cooks ever -- my grandmother. The proportions are a little ambiguous, use your eye -- that's how the best cooks do it! The secret -- be sure and dry the cucumbers well!

INGREDIENTS (for 8 servings):


  • Peel cucumbers, but leave a little on for color and slice by hand as thin as possible. Dry slices with paper towels.
  • Place dried cucumber slices in a large bowl with onion slices. Generously season with salt and pepper. Toss well and let sit 10 minuets, drain any excess liquids.
  • Toss cucumbers and onions in with enough sour cream to coat. Refrigerate until well chilled. Stir, and season with salt and pepper to taste if needed.
