Cucumber and Onion Salad

Well, my garden has really taken off - especially the cucumbers! Time to pull out all of my cucumber recipes (or lack there-of). Cucumber and onion salad has always been one of my summer favorites...and it's another mom recipe :) Stay tuned for cucumber post #2...Cool Cucumber Salsa with Homemade Tortilla Chips.


Ingredients
3 medium cucumbers, mostly peeled
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1 small red onion, thinly sliced
1/3 cup dairy sour cream or plain yogurt
2 Tbsp. sugar
3 Tbsp. white vinegar

Directions
Thinly slice cucumbers; add salt. Toss and place in refrigerator for 1 hour (this draws out the water).

Rinse well and drain cucumbers; add onion. Blend sour cream (or yogurt), sugar, and vinegar until smooth. Pour dressing over cucumbers and onion. Toss and chill for 4 hours. Serve cold. Makes 8 servings.
