Summertime Cucumber Salad

Don’t peel your cucumber completely.  Give them the striped effect.  It will hold up better and the dark green looks beautiful in this salad.  You can even save what you do peel and use it for garnish.  This dish needs to be made the day you plan to serve it.

cucumbers - sliced
teaspoon kosher salt
teaspoon white vinegar
cup mayonnaise
cup sour cream
tablespoon chopped fresh dill
tablespoon chopped fresh chives
Freshly ground black pepper


Partially peel and slice the cucumbers and put them in a glass bowl. Sprinkle them with salt and vinegar. Cover and let stand for 30 minutes.

Pour off the excess liquid and drain in colander for about 30 minutes to allow complete drainage. This will get out the excess water.

Add the mayonnaise, sour cream, dill, chives and pepper, and mix well. Cover and refrigerate until serving time.
