So if you’re looking for a good side dish, try this recipe out and see what I mean. Watch the video below to learn how to make this fantastic recipe.
- 1 large cucumber, cut into 1/8-inch
- 3/4 cup thinly sliced sweet onion
- 1 tsp kosher salt, divided
- 1/3 cup sour cream
- 1 tbsp rice vinegar
- 1 tbsp chopped fresh dill, plus more for garnish
- 2 tsp chopped fresh chives, plus more for garnish
- 1/4 tsp black pepper
To start, thinly slice your cucumber using a mandolin for uniform size, then cut your sweet onion thinly worth 3/4 cup. Add the sliced cucumber and sweet onion to a colander, add a little bit of salt, toss, and let them sit for one hour. (Toss in between to draw as much water as you can.) After this, pat them dry with a paper towel.
Next, combine 1/3 cup sour cream, 1 tbsp rice vinegar, 1 tbsp chopped fresh dill, 2 tsp chopped fresh chives, and a pinch of salt. Mix well, then add the dried cucumber and sweet onion and toss. Transfer it to a serving bowl, garnish with more fresh dill and chives, then serve.
