Chilly Dilly Cucumbers

2 or 3 peeled and seeded cukes

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon sugar

2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar or cider vinegar

2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill or 1 tablespoon dried dill weed

1/2 cup or more chopped scallion tops or about 1/4 cup of very thinly sliced onion

1/2 cup sour cream or 1/2 cup yogurt plus 3

teaspoons olive oil

Fresh ground black pepper

Dissolve the salt and sugar in vinegar in a medium sized mixing bowl.  Add the vinegar, dill, onion, sour cream or yogurt and pepper.  Mix together.  Toss the cukes in the dressing and refrigerate for at least an hour or two.  This salad does taste better with age.  It may become slightly watery in which case just needs a quick mixing.  You may want to add a crank of salt just before serving.
