Cucumber Salad

It's Summer - Produce Abounds!
It's mid July and the farmer's market is packed every Saturday morning. I am lucky enough to live in a suburb where we have farmers bring their goods twice a week and I seldom need to schlep all the way downtown; quite a relief since I already do it five days a week. I usually bike to the local market early on Saturdays with my son. He enjoys the ride and looking at all the beautiful flowers the vendors sell, he seldom even looks at the produce for fear he might be asked to try something! In addition, each Tuesday I get my CSA box which is always filled with a few unknowns and a few staples. This week I found myself with an abundance of cucumbers so I decided to make an old fashion cucumber salad.

Cucumber Salad

2 Cucumbers - Peeled, seeded and sliced
3/4 Cup Grape Tomatoes halved
1/4 Cup Red Onion finely sliced
1/2 Cup Sour Cream
2 t. Apple Cider Vinegar
2 t. Sugar
1 t. fresh dill, chopped
Salt and pepper to taste

  1. Mix sour cream, vinegar, sugar, and dill

  2. Add Cucumber, tomatoes and onion, mix

  3. Add salt and pepper to taste

I like to let it sit overnight - goes with anything summer!
