Scandanavian Cucumber and Dill Salad Recipe
1 cucumber (english is preferred)
1 tbsp. fresh chives or chopped green onions
1 tbsp. chopped fresh dill (or dried dill to taste)
1/3 cup sour cream or yogurt
freshly ground black pepper
Use food processor or mandolin to slice cucumbers evenly and thinly. Layer slices in a colander and salt as you go (moderately) and let cucumber drain for no longer than two hours. Then spin in salad spinner or pat dry in a towel. Combine all other ingredients and mix with cucumber. Serve right away. You can keep it in the refrigerator for up to a day, but it’s really best fresh or the cucumbers will decompose.
Takes longer than you might think- plan ahead!
Yummy with a veggie burger, as a refreshing side dish, or added to a plain lettuce salad.
