Why I Love This Recipe

Ingredients You'll Need

2 English Hot House Cucumbers, thinly sliced (You may decorate cucumbers by removing strips of the peeling before slicing; There is a name for this technique, but I don’t know what it’s called)
2 tsp Kosher salt
3 TB chopped fresh dill
1 TB White wine or Champagne Vinegar
1/3 cup Sour Cream
1/3 cup Crème fraîche
Freshly Ground Green pepper
Springs of dill for garnishing or Lemon slices


Place sliced cucumber in a colander over a bowl and sprinkle with salt; then toss lightly;

Allow to drain for 1 hour or so.

This will firm up the cucumber.

Rinse Cucumbers under cold water and pat them dry with a paper towel.

Put slices in a bowl, add chopped dill and toss.

In a small bowl combing the sour cream, crème fraîche and vinegar.

Season with Green pepper to taste.

Pour sour cream mixture over cucumbers and toss;

Chill for 1 hour before serving.

Garnish with sprigs of dill and lemon wedges when serving.
