SUMMERTIME CUCUMBER SLAW

I created this dish to prevent my cucumbers from spoiling. The name came to me after realizing, I had 3 carrots that I needed to use also. Then after grating instead of slicing them & blending them together, I realized it looked like Cole Slaw, hence the name. I was also grilling chicken on the grill, & realized it would make a great summer time side dish to go with the chunky potato salad I was also making.

This entire dish was made from ingredients I needed to use up, including the sour cream, needless to say it definitely did not disappoint my husband as he had several large servings.

Step-By-Step

1Wash and peel cucumbers and green onions, retaining a bit of the outside peel if desired for color.
2Cut into smaller cuts if desired to fit into tube of a food processor may grate by hand if you do not have a food processor.
3Then empty shredded cucumbers into a large sieve to drain excess liquid from cucumbers. Drain for at least a half hour, then press down on shredded vegetable to remove excess liquid, I got more than a cup of excess liquid. NOTE: THIS STEP PREVENTS THE SLAW FROM BEING WATERY.
4Grate the carrots, and remove any large pieces, combine the two together to a large bowl after the cucumbers has drained.
5Then prepare the sauce mixture by adding the sour cream and other ingredients to a medium size bowl, then stir till blended.
6Pour sauce mixture into bowl with shredded carrots and onions, then stir till completely blended together.
7Pour into desired serving dish and serve with your main entrée. NOTE: PREP TIMES INCLUDES 30 MINUTES OF DRAINING THE CUCUMBERS AND ONIONS IN A SIEVE.
