This Scandinavian-style salad is easy to prepare and full of lively accents. Salting and draining the cucumber is essential to prevent a watery salad.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups thinly sliced peeled English cucumbers
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced red onion
  • 1/4 cup regular sour cream
  • 1/4 cup regular light sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill (or 1 tsp/5mL dried dillweed)
  • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar

Method

In colander, sprinkle cucumber with salt ; let stand to drain for 30 minutes. Pat dry.

Meanwhile, soak onion in cold water for 15 minutes; drain and pat dry.

In bowl, whisk together sour cream, dill, vinegar and sugar. Add cucumber and onion; toss to coat.

Tip from The Test Kitchen: You can also use a regular field cucumber to make the salad. Once you've peeled it, slice the cucumber in half lengthwise. Run a small spoon down the centre to scoop out the tough seeds, and then slice the cucumber.
