Cucumber & Onion Salad

Well, I survived fair week.  It is so exhausting, but so worth it.  My kids did a fabulous job with their animals and projects.  My oldest will be headed to our state fair with her quilt!  Whohoo!!!

I have hardly cooked this week, but did have time to whip up some cucumbers and onions {and some Jumbo Blueberry Muffins}.  This is a great way to use up all those garden cucumbers.  I think my favorite cucumber recipe is my Cucumber Salsa.  If you have a cucumber recipe I would love for you to share it with me.  I am always looking for new ones to use up these cucumbers!!! 

Cucumber & Onion Salad

In a bowl combine.

4 whole cucumbers, peeled and sliced
1 whole onion, sliced

Combine the remaining ingredients and pour over cucumbers and onions.  Refrigerate for at least an hour prior to serving.

1 Cup sour cream
1/4 Cup white sugar
2 Tbsp distilled white vinegar 
1 Tsp dried dill weed
1/2 Tsp salt
1/2 Tsp ground black pepper
1/8 Tsp paprika
Dash of worcestershire sauce 



  1. I have never made this with sour cream, and man, it looks GOOD! Thanks!

  2. I seriously think we are living parallel lives! Just got home from our county fair....and was taking pics last night of our cucumbers and all the recipes we make with I will feel stupid posting it:)
    Would love for you to come on over and check out some of my kids' fair projects I posted today.

    Love your blog! ~Kim

  3. Yes, county fair was fun, but so glad it's over. I will miss seeing everyone though.

    I haven't seen a recipe like this before, it's a bit more "doctored up" than what I've tried. Hopefully I'll get some cucumbers so I can give it a try!

  4. The toilet paper should go over!! That's not even a question :)

  7. Cucumber and Onion Salad is one of those salad recipes that I’m not sure who in the world invented it, but it is pretty much served in just every Southern household I’ve visited. It is timeless, a classic, and makes a wonderful dish.

  8. How long does it keep? It looks scrumptious!

  10. I make this substituting the sour cream for French Onion dip. It's delish
