Directions

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Layer 1/4 of the sliced cucumbers and 1/4 of the onion in a large bowl. Season with 1 teaspoon of salt. Repeat the layers 3 more times. Cover and allow to rest on the counter until the cucumbers and onion releases about 1 inch of liquid and are softened, 3 to 4 hours.
  2. Drain cucumbers and onion in a colander and thoroughly rinse to remove any remaining salt. Let the vegetables continue to drain in the colander for 30 minutes. Transfer the vegetables to a bowl, then stir in the sour cream. Cover and refrigerate until chilled, about 30 minutes.

Your Aunt Gert and my Grandmother were genius! My Gram made these as long as I can remember as did my Mom and I have as well....I wait very impatiently for the garden to produce our cuke crop....sure I make them with store bought, but somehow they taste better with our own. I always use sweet Vidalia onions....I could eat the entire bowl...hmmmm, actually I think I do. You will love love love em!

I add a little olive or pickle juice to the sour cream then stir that mixture into my thinkly sliced cukes. It's AWESOME!!

I had a hard time rinsing the salt off, but overall very good. A nice change of pace from the sweet. Also there is another recipe on here that calls for 16 oz of sour cream, the 8 oz is perfect amount. I also like the onions, might do a batch of just onions in the future.
