Cucumber, Sweet Onion and Dill Salad


2 large cucumbers, peeled and seeded

Sea salt (to draw out the moisture)

1 large sweet onion, peeled and cut into fine julienne

1/4 cup white wine vinegar

1 cup sour cream (non-fat will work)

1/4 cup chopped fresh dill

2 tablespoons snipped fresh chives

Salt and freshly ground black pepper (to taste)

Tabasco or favorite hot red pepper sauce to taste



In a colander, generously salt the cucumbers with sea salt and allow to draw out the moisture.

Transfer the cucumbers to a bowl of ice water to rinse. Drain well in the colander. Pat dry with paper towels and transfer to a clean bowl.

Add the onion and vinegar and mix well.

Add the sour cream, dill and chives. Season with salt, pepper, and hot sauce. Mix well.
