Farm-wife Diane, tells us that cucumber/onion with mayo and vinegar quenches a HUNGRY MANS stomach, “Every year my mother-in-law would bring us a big bowl and I would have to fight the farm guys to get a portion”. So… REFRESHING, on a HOT summer day!


  • 2 cucumbers, very thinly sliced.
  • 1 onion, very thinly sliced.
  • 2 tablespoons vinegar or 2 tablespoons lemon juice.
  • 2 tablespoons low-fat sour cream or 2 tablespoons yogurt or mayo
  • salt and pepper, to taste (I like a lot of pepper)
  • 12 teaspoon sugar, optional
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh dill. Or 1/2 teaspoon dried dill


  1. Mix cucumbers and onions together.  Mix rest of ingredients together in a  bowl and stir.  Add to cucumbers, chill till very cold & serve.
