Sour Cream Salad

Fran Miller


This easy-to-make salad was part of just about every picnic or summer meal I can ever remember at my parents' house. The sour cream picks up the flavors of the vegetables deliciously. As a child, I loved that I could easily spoon out the yummy vegetables I liked, leaving behind the yucky onions. Of course, at some point, I decided the onions weren't that yucky after all.

Mom would toss this together before starting supper, giving it time to chill and the flavors to mix before serving. It sure tastes like summer to me! =^..^=
