Cucumber Salad

This is another PA Dutch traditional salad with the sweet and sour mixture.

1 medium onion, thinly sliced
2-3 large cucumbers, thinly sliced
1/2 to 2/3 of a 16 oz container of sour cream
2-3 tsps apple cider vinegar
1 T sugar

Thinly slice cucumbers and place in a colander in the sink. Sprinkle with salt all over the cucumbers and allow to sit 5-10 minutes to wilt the cucumbers. Rinse and drain the cumbers thoroughly and press out as much water as you can (it’s okay to squeeze the water out with your hands). In a small bowl mix the sour cream, vinegar, sugar and a few dashes of pepper. Stir and taste. Adjust sweet/sour ratio to your taste. Add sliced onions and cucumber to a medium-sized glass bowl and pour dressing over the top. Mix well and refrigerate at least an hour for the seasonings to blend.
