Cucumber Salad with Sour Cream

I’m reminded why I started this blog. The other night I threw together a cucumber salad that had sour cream, vinegar, and dill with sliced cucumbers. My dinner guest and I could not stop eating it! I usually make a cucumber salad with just vinegar, water, and sugar. And that one’s good, but the sour cream was a nice touch for a change.

Last night I thought I’d make that cucumber and sour cream salad again, but I could not find the recipe! I came here to the blog first and was mad at myself for not getting it written up and posted. Then I went through my most obvious cookbooks. I could not find one that looked familiar. I searched online and found this one and tried it. It was missing something. I added some sugar. That wasn’t quite it.

I’m so mad! Do any of you have a favorite recipe? I’m growing cucumbers so will be eating a lot in another month or so! Great recipes are welcome!
