Ingredients

1 medium cucumber
1⁄4 tsp salt
2 large spring onions (scallions) with green stems, finely sliced
4 medium red radishes, thinly sliced

Sour Cream Dressing
1⁄2 cup (125 g/4 oz) sour cream
2 tbsp tarragon vinegar or white wine vinegar
1 tbsp finely chopped fresh dill or 1 tsp dried dill
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp Dijon mustard
1⁄4 tsp freshly ground black pepper

Directions

  1. Slice cucumber in half lengthwise and scoop out seeds with a teaspoon. Slice cucumber thinly. Place in a bowl, sprinkle with salt and let stand 30 minutes. Drain, pat dry. Place cucumber, spring onions and radishes in a large bowl.
  2. To make sour cream dressing, whisk sour cream, vinegar, dill, sugar, mustard and pepper until combined. Spoon over cucumber mixture. Toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate one hour.

Cook’s Tip: Salting cucumbers removes some of the liquid so that the flavour of a dressing is not heavily diluted.
