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
- 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.
- 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.
