Cucumber Salad

I associate cucumber salad with summer days spent at my grandmother's house.  She always had cucumber salad for my brother and me ready to go and it was vingeary, and fresh and full of cucumbers which may be my favorite vegetable.  I know it's a sad excuse to have cucumbers as a favorite vegetable since they're basically all water, but what can I say?  They're delicious.  Anyway, I was really hungry one night and just happened to have two large English cucumbers in the fridge.  Bingo!  Cucumber salad.  This recipe has a little bit of sour cream, which I don't think was in my grandmother's recipe, but I still thought about her while eating it, and probably will every time I do.

Serves 6 as a side dish

2 large English cucumbers, peeled and sliced thin
1/2 red onion, very thinly sliced
3 T. white vinegar
3 T. sour cream
3/4 t. sugar
1 1/2 t. chopped fresh dill
salt and pepper to taste...I like very little

Combine all in a bowl that seals and shake to combine.  Chill until very cold.  I found that if the cucumbers were in the fridge before being sliced, you can eat this immediately and it's still cold enough.
