Creamy Cucumber Salad

Although the ingredients and preparation of the cucumber and red onion salad are minimal and simple, the dish has a unique flavor. Unlike regular onions, red onions are pickled and have a milder taste. Don't worry about using a lot of onions since the salad won't have an aggressive flavor but will be slightly spicy instead. The dressing for this salad is made with sour cream, which brings together the ingredients and adds creamy sourness.


  • 1 large cucumber
  • 1/4 red onion
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp dried dill
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
