How to Make Cucumber & red onion salad with dill
- Put the yogurt and sour cream in a coffee filter over a strainer in the refrigerator and drain till the liquid has all drained out, usually takes 30 ~ 60 minutes.
- In a colander put the cucumbers and sprinkle the salt over the cucumbers and place in the sink to drain for at least 1 hour.
- After 15 minutes drain the onions “ do not rinse “ and put them in the refrigerator.
- After 1 hour swish the cucumbers in a bowl of very cold water getting as much of the salt off as you can, drain. Deepening on how much salt gets removed you may need to do this step twice. Drain in a colander till all the liquid has stopped draining.
- Carefully toss the cucumbers and onions in a large bowl.
- Add the dill and toss carefully.
- Refrigerate for at least 3 hours.
