  • In a small bowl, combine sour cream, lemon juice, garlic, dill, salt and pepper to taste. Stir and set aside while prepping salad.
  • Peel (if necessary) and slice cucumbers into thin rounds or half rounds if using large cucumbers. Place in a large mixing bowl. Add thinly sliced onion.
  • Just before serving, pour the sauce over the cucumbers and onions, and mix to coat. After adding sauce, the salad will stay fresh for about 2-3 hours if refrigerated.



  • Chives – add 1/3 cup chives or green onion instead of onion for a milder onion flavor.
  • Mayo – lately we’ve been loving the addition of 1-2 Tbsp mayo to the dressing instead of lemon juice.
  • Greek yogurt – I’ve tested plain Greek yogurt and it works (although not quite as good), just omit lemon juice if using.
