Ingredients

  • 2 large cucumbers about 1½ to 2 pounds
  • ½ medium sweet onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon dry dill weed or minced fresh dill, 1 to 2 tablespoons
  • Kosher salt and fresh cracked pepper

Instructions

  • Peel and halve the cucumbers lengthwise. If necessary, scoop out the seeds and slice thinly crosswise. Place in large bowl and add sliced onions.
  • In separate bowl, whisk together sour cream, cider vinegar, sugar and dill until sugar is dissolved. Season with a little salt and pepper.
  • Add dressing to cucumber and onions, toss well to combine. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour or longer, stirring occasionally. Serve and enjoy!

Notes

  • It's totally fine not to peel or seed the cucumbers, it's a personal preference.
  • Regular white vinegar can be substituted for the apple cider vinegar.
  • Fresh dill can be used instead of dry, you'll need more of it, adjust to taste.
