There are quite a few things that I don’t love about the winter, but the lack of good produce is definitely at the top of that list. Tomatoes are mealy and herbs are expensive. I find myself struggling to decide what to serve at mealtimes to accompany the main dish.
This simple salad is perfect for any time of year. You can usually find decent cucumbers year round, and I use dried dill, saving my pocketbook from the expense of fresh dill in the winter. So it’s very inexpensive to make, and it doesn’t hurt that this salad is basically just chop and drop!
So next time you are looking to brighten up your dinner plate, give this simple salad a try!
Cucumber and Red Onion Salad
3 large cucumbers
1 red onion
2 teaspoons dried dill
1 cup sour cream
1/3 cup white vinegar
salt and pepper
Peel the cucumbers. Cut them into quarters, then into half inch cubes. Place them in a large bowl.
Thinly slice the onion and add to the cucumbers. Add in the dill and stir to combine.
In a small bowl, whisk together the sour cream and vinegar. Add to the cucumber mixture and stir to mix. Season with salt and pepper.
