  • 3 large cucumbers washed, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon coarse sea salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • ½ tablespoon vinegar
  • ½ teaspoon sugar


  • Place the cucumber slices in a medium bowl, and season with salt and pepper
  • In another bowl, mix the vinegar, sugar and sour cream together
  • Stir sour cream mixture into cucumbers until well coated
  • Refrigerate until ready to serve


Best when served right after making. To make ahead of time, you can remove excess water by salting sliced cucumbers and draining liquid in colander for 30 minutes. Then, rinse, and add sour cream mixture.
Add thinly sliced yellow or red onions if desired.
