Cucumbers in Sour Cream : A Special Thanksgiving Recipe

Part of the Thanksgiving meal is having special dishes that bring back memories of years gone by.  In Sew Daddy's family, one of those special dishes is Cucumbers in Sour Cream.   His Mother made it every Thanksgiving and it was always a family favorite.  It was a nice, fresh taste among all of the other yummy, rich food that comes along with holidays. Sew Daddy's mother is in Heaven but she is remembered every year when we enjoy her special recipe.  She was a generous woman and would be happy for me to share her recipe with you.

Cucumbers in Sour Cream
3-4 large cucumbers; washed and peeled
1/2 sweet, white onion; diced
salt and pepper to taste
sour cream {I use light}

Slice cukes into very thin slices {about 1/16" if possible} and put them into a large bowl.  Add diced onion and season to taste with salt and pepper.  Add enough sour cream and toss to coat all cukes and onions.  Add more sour cream as needed to make sure the dish is moist.  Cover and chill until ready to serve.  Overnight is best, if possible.

This is great made a day ahead, but can be enjoyed the same day if made early.  if there are any leftovers, I enjoy it over it over a green salad. It serves as the dressing and is DIVINE!  If you plan to do this, add a little extra sour cream when making the dish.  ENJOY!
