Cucumbers in Sour Cream
This dish is perfect as a cool, refreshing side in a summer meal. However, it is deceptively simple. There's one step that is vital to its success.
This next step is important. Drain the cucumber slices first in a colander. Then place the slices between several layers of paper towels, pressing to remove excess liquid. You do not have to smash the slices; just press them firmly.
Return the drained cucumbers to the bowl and stir in the vinegar, chives and black pepper. Next, stir in the sour cream 1/4 cup at a time. The amount of sour cream used depends upon the amount of cucumber slices your 3 large cucumbers produced. You don't want the slices swimming in sour cream. Just add enough sour cream to coat the slices well. Chill at least 1 hour before serving.Makes 4 to 6 servings.
