Marsha's notes for this recipe:
My mom loved sour cream and she put it on everything. She made these cucumbers and then served them over hot, boiled red potatoes. Luscious. I like them as a side with lots of summer dishes. A great way to use cucumbers when they seem to be multiplying by the hour in your garden.

Slice cucumbers, I leave skin on when the cucumbers are young and tender, place in a bowl. Salt and cover with ice and water and allow to sit for several hours.
Meanwhile place sour cream in a small colander lined with a coffee filter and allow excess water to drain from sour cream.
Drain cucumbers and pat dry with paper towels. Add onion slices, drained sour cream and black pepper. Mix well and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
Chopped dill is a great addition to sour cucumbers.

I do garlic when I make tzatziki but when I do mom's sour cukes they have to have the onion. Vidalia's are so sweet sometimes I can eat them by them selves.

have you tried green beans instead of cucumber? i do that lot when i get tired of green salad
user Marsha Gardner mrdick1950 - Oct 13, 2012
My mom put sour cream on everything. She would steam fresh green beans from the garden, slather them with butter and then a big ol' dollop of sour cream. After my husband saw my mom do that he wants his that way as well. We even out sour cream on green beans from the can, but the fresh steamed ones are the best. Gotta have lots of butter with it.
