• 2-3 cucumbers
  • 8 oz. sour cream
  • cider vinegar
  • 1-2 onions thinly sliced
  • salt & pepper
  • 2 T. sugar (approx.)


Peel & thinly slice cucumbers. For best results, place in colander & sprinkle with salt & let sit for at least an hour. This will remove some of the water in the cukes & keep the dressing from becoming too runny but this step is not essential.

In a small bowl or coffee cup dissolve sugar with vinegar. ( I usually start with a spoonful of sugar & a small amount of vinegar - it's easier to adjust later. Mix in sour cream & blend till creamy. Taste and add sugar or vinegar. I like it with a slightly tart aftertaste but it's strictly up to the cook! Make sure you add vinegar sparingly or dressing will become too thin. A little goes a long way.

In a medium bowl, mix cucumbers, onions, pepper & if desired additional salt. Pour dressing over all & mix. Cover, chill & serve. Will keep at least three days.
