This salad has a mild sour cream dressing with thinly sliced and peeled cucumbers. The dressing gets more watery over night and the flavors blend together as the salt and vinegar in the dressing pickle and soften the cucumber slices. Mix the dressing ingredients together in small bowl and then add to the cucumbers – or add all of the ingredients to the cucumbers but the sugar and vinegar dissolves and mixes with the sour cream more easily in a separate small bowl.
3 cucumbers – peeled and cut very thin, 1/8th inch thick
4 green onions / scallions – minced
1/2 to 1 cup sour cream, regular or light – I don’t use fat free because it doesn’t provide any oil for a dressing.
1-2 Tablespoons cider vinegar or white cooking vinegar
1-2 Tablespoons sugar
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon salt – helps pickle and preserve the cucumber slices
This makes about six to eight 1/2 cup servings.
