Cucumber Dill Salad



Well...here we go with another salad! Who knew I made so many????? I found this one at Cooks.com .....I brought it to a family picnic yesterday and it went over very well....so I thought I would share it with you. My mother in law makes a similar one and she mentioned I didn't put any onion in it. The recipe doesn't call for it....but she looooves to put onion in everything. Here's the recipe if you have a bunch of cucumbers.

4 med. cucumbers....I actually used 6
1 1/2 c. dairy sour cream
1 sm. clove garlic, minced
2 tbsp. salad oil
2 tsp. sugar
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. white wine vinegar
1/2 tsp. dill weed...and this is TOTALLY not enough!! I must have put about about 3or 4 Tablespoons in.

Pare cucumbers and slice thinly into large bowl. Stir together remaining ingredients except dill weed; pour over cucumbers and toss lightly. Sprinkle with dill weed. Cover and chill. Just before serving, toss carefully. 8-10 servings.

I can personally attest to this salad. I grew up on it being from a Ukrainian household. My grandfather lived with us for many years growing up, and cucumber dill salad was a staple in our home. Yummy Yum Yum!!!

Mark's grandma put very thinly sliced onions in hers too. I would always pick around the onions, but I'm sure it added a little different flavor to the cucumbers. Keep comin' with the salad ideas! They're so great for summer!
