  • 1 cup sour cream (or plain Greek style yogurt)
  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • Dash of pepper
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley or dill
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced
  1. Place cucumbers in a large glass bowl. Sprinkle with salt and vinegar. Cover and let stand for 30 minutes. Pour off liquid.

  2. In a separate bowl, whisk together sour cream, mayonnaise, sugar and pepper until smooth.

  3. Pour dressing over the drained cucumbers. Stir in parsley or dill and sliced green onions.

  4. Cover and chill until ready to serve.
Recipe Notes

*If you use regular cucumbers instead of the English cucumbers, you will want to peel them because regular cucumbers tend to have a tougher, waxier exterior.

Cooking Just for Two? You can cut all of the ingredients in half and prepare a smaller salad. The rest of the instructions remain the same.
