Recipe Information
My grandmother makes this all the time. It's really good.

Jessica W. in CA

Serves/Makes:4 or more

  • 1-2 whole cucumbers, peeled and sliced
  • lemon juice
  • parsley
  • salted water
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) finely chopped onion
  • 1 cup (225 ml) sour cream
  • black pepper
  • salt
  • Soak the cucumbers in the salted water for about an hour, then drain and rinse.
  • Place the cucumbers in a bowl and add the sour cream and chopped onion.
  • Add lemon juice (about half of a whole lemon's worth), salt, pepper, and parsley to taste (The lemon juice helps to make the sour cream taste like buttermilk).
  • Mix thoroughly--the sauce should be slighly runny but not overly so (Sauce will thicken upon standing).
  • Refrigerate for several hours to let the mixture thicken.
  • Serve as a side salad.
