One of the first times I had dinner at the home of my husband-to-be, his
mother served a cucumber salad with sour cream. I had never heard of
eating sour cream and really couldn't imagine why anyone would want to!
It took quite a while, but eventually I did try it - more out of
politeness than anything else - and I was amazed to find it was
delicious. Today, I wouldn't think of serving steak or roast beef
without this great side dish.
1 cucumber, peeled and thinly sliced 1/2 medium onion, diced
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cup sour cream
Combine the cucumber, onion and salt. Fold in sour cream, cover and chill for at least an hour. Stir before serving.
