Creamy Cucumbers Overs Mashed Potatoes
Featured Pinch Tips Video
- 4-5 medium
- size cucumbers
- to sprinkle over the cucumbers
- 1-1/2 cups
- heavy whipping cream
- 1/4 cup
- 5% white vinegar
- 1/4 tsp.
- 1/4 tsp.
- black pepper
- already prepared 'hot' mashed potatoes
1Peel and (thinly slice) each cucumber into a colander. And between each layer of cucumber, peeled and sliced, sprinkle with a bit of salt over each. (I normally set my colander inside a larger bowl, to allow the liquid from the cucumbers, to drain into the larger bowl.)
2Let cucumbers sit in the colander for 1-3 hours. Then transfer the cucumbers into another bowl. (Discard the remaining liquid that has drained into the larger bowl.)
3Now add the cream and vinegar to the cucumbers, and gently stir the cucumbers.
4Add the salt and pepper, and once again, gently stir the cucumbers.
5Cover the cucumbers, and place the bowl in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours.
6Serve the creamy cucumbers over the 'hot' mashed potatoes. (For each serving: Just place desired amount of mashed potatoes onto your plate, and top with desired amount of the creamy cucumbers.)
7Note: Before I top my potatoes with the cucumbers and cream, I first top my taters with a bit of butter, and let it melt into the potatoes just a bit. I just enjoy mine served this way!
