Day 187 - Cucumber Salad

My grandmother's cucumber salad was the best. Thinly sliced. Just the right hint of fresh dill and salt. Creamy sour cream dressing. Thankfully, my boys like it, too. And the summer heat is the perfect time for this refreshing salad. I even like the process of making it. Chopping even slices. Marinating it in the salt and dill. Stirring to make sure every slice is coated. Yummy! There is joy in cucumber salad!

Yes! Cucumber salad is a sure sign of summer. And I love that each family has their own variation. My mom's salad was cukes diced (not sliced) in Miracle Whip (not mayo) with salt and pepper. That's it. Husband's mom made it sliced with sour cream and dill. So simple and so yummy!
