Recipe: Creamy Cucumber Dill Salad

I made this simple salad for a dinner party I had on Friday night. Thanks for the idea, Mom! Thanks for Grandma’s beautiful china as well. We are making good use out of it. And thank you Dad for bringing it up and devoting a day to helping us move. (Perfect anniversary presents.)

Creamy Cucumber Dill Salad

Slice up 1 very large cucumber (~2 cups). Slice 1/2 a large red onion (< 1 cup) very finely. Mix veggies together with 1/2 cup sour cream, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon pepper, and 2 teaspoons dried dill. Serve slightly chilled. Serves about 4 as a side dish.

You know, food just tastes better with some wine. Here is what I’m drinking this week:

It’s a local wine that I got at a farmers’ market in Trenton last time I visited New Jersey. If you see it around, pick it up. It’s a great rose from Unionville Vineyards – slightly dry and incredibly flavorful.


Do you like wine? What is your favorite kind?
