Sour Cream and Dill Cucumber Salad

Refreshing salad for those hot summer months.  Just slice up some cucumbers, radishes, onions and dress with a dill and sour cream.  The dressing is made from sour cream, dill, lemon juice and a tiny bit of horseradish for just a kick.  If you are serving kids just leave out the horseradish which is optional.

      I had the recipe already written in draft yesterday. I got up early to do laundry and while it was quiet I thought I would make this real quick and photograph it to post. It was so good that I picked at until it was gone and it ended up being breakfast. LOL…

      Thanks for your comment. I was given 6 European cucumbers that week at the food bank. This was one of the recipes I found. I was also given a big bag of tomatoes that was past their shelf life. I used my juicer and made tomato juice and canned the juice in half pints that I normally use to make jam. Now I have 10 little jars of juice to use when making soup. One cup of tomato juice does liven up a pot of soup. I spent a couple of bucks on flat lids but it was still a savings and nice to have on hand for the future and nothing got wasted. It can be feast of famine at the food bank. So I am lucky that I have the equipment to do a little hoarding.
