Tired of the same ol' cucumber routine? Cucumbers in salads, or with salt
and pepper, or cucumbers in vinegar. And if you have a
garden, you probably have cukes coming out your ears. Or other orifices.
Yes, cucumbers coming out your nose!
At any rate, give this recipe, "Easy Side Dish -- Cucumbers in Sour Cream" a try. It's a snap to make.
1/2 C + 2 Tbsp sour cream
2 1/2 Tbsp vinegar
1 Tbsp sugar
1/4 tsp dried dill
1/4 tsp salt (more, if desired)
3 medium cucumbers, peeled and sliced
1 small Vidalia onion (or other sweet onion), thinly sliced, separated into rings.
Mix sour cream, vinegar, sugar, dill, salt and pepper in a serving bowl.
Add cucumbers and onions. Toss gently. Cover. Refrigerate 2-4 hours ...
if you can stand to wait that long. Serves 6-8.
As long as you like cucumbers and onions, you'll love cucumbers in sour cream. It's a great one to fixfor your own supper, or to
take to a potluck, too. Everyone will rave, and you'll have found a way
to use up the produce on that cucumber plant from Hades ... er ... I
mean, those copious amounts of fruit on that lovely cucumber plant.
