Here is a recipe for cucumber salad that is a hit every time I serve it.
Cucumbers with Sour Cream
4 large cucumbers
2 teaspoons salt
¼ cup wine vinegar
½ teaspoon paprika
2 tablespoons salad oil
½ cup sour cream
Peel the cucumbers and slice thin. Sprinkle with the salt and let stand for 15 minutes. Drain and press out the moisture. (I just grab a handful at a time and squeeze the juice out of it.) Add the vinegar and paprika. A few minutes before serving add the salad oil and sour cream.
I like to add half a medium onion (finely chopped) and mix the whole thing up the night before. It gives the flavors a chance to blend and makes the cucumbers a little more crunchy. Makes a great side dish for a BBQ. Enjoy!
I may just do a quick grill job on something this afternoon; a check of my profile page will show you the current temperature, which means I don't even need to do any pre-heating!
