Cucumbers in Creamy Yogurt-Dill Sauce
A picnic delight!
2 medium cucumbers (about 1 lb.), thinly sliced
2 tsp. salt
1/4 c. thinly slivered red onion, or other mild onion, optional
2 c. plain yogurt
1/2 c. sour cream
1 Tbsp. white wine or rice vinegar
1/3 c. snipped dill
Salt and pepper to taste
Put cucumber in a strainer and toss with salt. Allow to drain over a bowl for 15-30 minutes. Squeeze out any excess moisture gently with the back of a spoon. Rinse, drain again and pat dry. Combine cucumbers with onion (if using) in a bowl.
Whisk together the remaining ingredients and stir into the cucumbers.
Refrigerate for an hour or two before serving to allow flavors to blend well.
