INGREDIENTS

  • 2 Continental cucumbers
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
  • 1/4 cup chopped dill
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 1/3 cup plain unsweetened yogurt
  • 1 Tbsp white wine vinegar
  • 1/2 Tbsp honey 
  • 1-2 tsp sea salt
  • pepper

 

PREPARATION INSTRUCTIONS

  • Wash cucumbers and peel lengthwise.
  • Use a mandolin to slice the cucumbers into about 1-2 mm thick rounds into a large bowl or slice thinly with a good knife.
  • Add sea salt to the cucumber slices and mix well with your hands, then set them aside in the bowl for at least 15 minutes or until they release most of their water.
  • In the meantime, finely chop red onion and de-stalk dill and chop up dill leaves.
  • Mix the salad dressing by adding sour cream, honey, vinegar, and yogurt to a bowl and whisk.
  • By now the cucumber should have released most of its excess water. Tip the bowl to a side and pour the liquid out of the bowl while holding the cucumber slices with your hands. If you leave the water in there, it will water down your dressing and it will eventually become more of a soup than a salad.
  • Add chopped onion and dill to the cucumber, pour dressing over it, give it a good stir and enjoy!
