Just like my Oma used to make. You're going to love this easy recipe that's perfect for all the cucumbers growing in your garden this summer.
  • 2 tbsp vinegar
  • 2 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp sour cream
  • 1/2 tsp. sugar
  • 1 tbsp chopped chives
  • Salt and Pepper
  • 2 medium sized cucumbers
  1. Peel the cucumbers if desired and thinly slice them with a mandoline slicer. The thinner the better!
  2. Place the cucumbers in a colander and salt them...generously.
  3. Cover the cucumbers with paper towel and place the colander over a bowl to allow the cucumbers to drain the excess water for at least 2 hours.
  4. Squeeze the cucumbers to remove any excess water...you want them as dry as possible.
  5. Add the cucumbers to a bowl and prepare dressing.
  6. Combine all the ingredients for the dressing in a small bowl and then pour over the cucumbers. Toss gently to combine.
  7. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours before serving.
Recipe Notes

Cook Time is actually how long to refrigerate until serving.  You want to serve this cucumber salad cold.
