Creamy Cucumber Salad

Our garden has exploded with cucumbers. I probably should have picked them a few days ago but camping was calling our family's name. I love smell of fresh cucumbers. Combining these cool cucumber with this salad's creamy sauce, will help you cool off after a warm summer day.

Creamy Cucumber Salad
4 cups cucumber (about 3 large cucumbers)
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 cup sour cream
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
2 teaspoons dill
1 teaspoon vinegar
1 teaspoon sugar
white pepper, to taste

Select cucumbers that are firm from your garden or grocery store. This will ensure that your cucumbers will be crisp.

Peel the cucumber, optional.

Slice into 1/4 inch pieces and place into a bowl.

Add salt and toss. Let cucumbers sit refrigerated for 15 minutes.

Drain liquid from cucumbers.

Mix together sour cream, onion powder, garlic powder, dill, vinegar, and sugar.

Toss dressing with cucumbers. Stir well to coat.

Chill for one hour prior to serving. Stir prior to serving. Sprinkle with white pepper, if desired.
