How to make creamy cucumber salad with sour cream and dill
Slice crunchy, thin-skinned cucumbers into rounds. You don’t need to peel or de-seed them. The long English cucumbers or the small Persian varieties are both perfect.
Sweet onions bump up the flavor and add a little textural variety. Use Vidalia onions if you can find them. If not, a regular sweet onion will do.
Make a quick dressing with sour cream, lemon juice, salt, and pepper. Mix in fresh dill or freeze dried dill and it’s ready to go. So easy and delicious!
Serve this immediately after making it. If it sits too long, the cucumbers start to release water.
Fresh and freeze-dried dill both work well.

You can use Greek yogurt instead of sour cream for a higher protein option.
