Creamy cucumber salad

IMG_1026

This beautiful cucumber salad was a staple in our family growing up, we ate it often and I always enjoyed it.  There’s not much to it, just a few simple ingredients – I think that’s what I love about it.  I’m a sucker for good food made with simple quality ingredients.  In this case crisp cucumbers and fresh aromatic dill tossed in this creamy sour cream dressing.

Nowadays,  I still make it almost as often as I had it as a kid.  It’s the perfect addition to your brunch table and a great midday snack. It also goes lovely with grilled salmon, roasted chicken and more.

YIELD – approx. 4-6 servings (as a side)

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 english cucumbers
  • 3 sliced green onions
  • 1/4 cup roughly chopped dill
  • 1/2 cup full fat sour cream*
  • juice from 1/2 fresh lemon (optional)
  • salt and pepper to taste

I hope you like this effortless salad recipe as much as I do.  But, don’t be afraid to make it your own, experiment with other herbs or a splash of flavoured vinegar.

Till the next recipe.
