Sour Cream Cucumber Salad

This was one of my favorite summer-time side dishes growing up – and still is! Cool, crisp, and predominantly sour cream! Yum!

My dad claims it’s “an old family recipe”, past down by his Great Grandma Ethel, that was then “stolen by those bastards at Better Homes & Garden’s cook book…”. (Yes, that is a direct quote.) But to take the less extreme side of things, I’m sure it has been a family favorite for a long time and there are many others out there who feel the same. To me, it doesn’t matter as much who created it, but with whom I can share it. Enjoy!



2 cucumbers, thinly sliced
1 small onion, thinly sliced
1/2 c. sour cream
1 T. vinegar
1 t. sugar
1/2 t. salt


1. Combine the cucumbers and onions in large bowl. (I used my food processor to slice them thinly.)
2. Stir together sour cream, vinegar, sugar, and salt; toss with vegetables.
3. Cover and chill for 2 hours, mixing occasionally (if you remember – I never do).
