1 batch

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Peel and slice the cucumber very thin.
  2. Chop the green onions (including the tops). Mix with the cucumber.
  3. Sprinkle the salt and sugar over all and toss lightly with a fork to distribute sugar and salt evenly over the cucumber slices.
  4. Let stand 15 to 20 minutes.
  5. Drain thoroughly, pressing cucumber to extract as much moisture as possible. Stir the vinegar into the sour cream.
  6. Add a dash of white pepper.
  7. Pour over cucumber and onion.
  8. Refrigerate until ready to serve. NOTE: I usually double this recipe as it is better the longer it sits in the refrigerator.
  9. I also like more onion so I usually use 3 to 4 if they are small.
