Creamy Cucumber Salad (My Mom’s Style)

You will never read about a childhood recipe that my mother made was in any way terrible. She was a great cook. Lately, in her dotage I must state that the kitchen is not where she wants to be AND she modified her once delicious recipes to  be ehhhh less attractive. This classic cucumber salad is made with sour cream and I love this over any summer salad side you can offer. It is easy to make, not expensive and is a great crowd pleaser. Let’s make my Mother’s recipe…handed to her by her mother….Classic Cucumber Salad!

1 red onion (peeled and thinly sliced)

1/2 cup sour cream
