  • 2 seedless English cucumbers, thinly sliced (approximately 5 cups total)*
  • 1 teaspoon white vinegar
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 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


  • Place cucumbers in a large glass bowl. Sprinkle with salt and vinegar. Cover and let stand for 30 minutes. Pour off liquid.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together sour cream, mayonnaise, sugar and pepper until smooth.
  • Pour dressing over the drained cucumbers. Stir in parsley or dill and sliced green onions.
  • Cover and chill until ready to serve.


*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.
