Cucumber and Red Onion Salad with Dill

The first time I had this salad I lived in Brooklyn and the local deli sold it by the pound.

It was with the potato salad and cole slaw and one day I picked up the wrong container and came home with the cucumber salad.

It was love at first bite.

Since then I have experimented with all different recipes and finally settled on the simplest one.

One large English Cucumber sliced thin.

One medium thin sliced red onion

Three teaspoons dried dill or three tablespoons fresh chopped dill.

One tablespoon cider vinegar

4 ounces sour cream or plain yogurt

1/4 teaspoon salt and black pepper

Mix the sour cream, salt, pepper, vinegar and dill together.

Add the cucumbers and onion and mix well

This tastes the best when you serve it within a few hours.

You can also use half yogurt and half sour cream.

I love sour cream so I go for the extra calories.

If you use a regular cucumber make sure you take all the seeds out or else you will have  a lot of extra water.

Delicious with salmon or chicken.
