Cucumber Salad

Cucumber salad is one of summer’s little pleasures, much like cold watermelon, fresh raspberries and chilled soups. It’s the simplest salad, really – cucumber and onion slices are mixed with a simple dressing of sour cream, vinegar and salt, and allowed to macerate in the fridge for a few hours. The result is incredible – tasty, refreshing, and the perfect side to grilled meats and seafood.
