Creamy Cucumber Salad

There are three salads from my mom's side of the family that I can vividly recall from childhood.  The first is my grandmother's potato salad (which she NEVER wrote down), and the last two come from my two great aunts.  One is a creamy Harvard Beet Salad and the second is a Creamy Cucumber Salad.

This salad is fast and a great solution to use up that half eaten cucumber before it goes bad.

Creamy Cucumber Salad
3 each cucumbers, medium sized, peeled and thinly sliced

½ teaspoon salt
½ cube green onion, finely chopped
1 tablespoon white vinegar
dash white pepper
¼ cup sour cream, light
dash sugar

Sprinkle the cucumbers with salt. Let stand 15 minutes. Drain liquid. Add the onions, vinegar and pepper and sugar. Just before serving, stir in the sour cream.

Simple, tasty, and makes a great side!


  1. I grew up with this salad, as well. Still love it today.

  2. I grew up with this, too. Simple and yummy! Linda
