  1. Cut cucumbers in half lengthwise and scoop out the seeds. Cut into 3/4 inch chunks. If the chunks aren't firm, place them in a colander and sprinkle with salt. Let drain 20 minutes (if they are firm you may omit this step).
  2. Place butter in a medium to large skillet over medium heat. When it melts, add the onion and cook 5 minutes. Stir in the cucumbers and cook another 5 minutes. Sprinkle with black pepper to taste.
  3. Reduce heat to low and stir in sour cream and plenty of dill. Stir and serve warm.

This provided a pleasantly cool contrast to the rather spicy 'Stuffed Cod Wrapped in Bacon' I made tonight, but other than that, we weren't overly wowed. Thanks anyway, molly!

I have been reading the reviews and some have said that this recipe is too salty. You only need to salt the cucumbers if they are soft. If your cuc's are a little old, salt them, then drain them...

I have always loved trying new and unexpected recipes! That amount of salt is probably meant to be sprinkled on the cucumbers, in a colander, so that they will drain their excess water. I alwa...

Simple and delicious. I was a bit leary of cooking cucumbers, but it turned out great. I used the seedless "English" cucumbers. They cook up better and have less moisture. I have actually ma...

I loved it! All the flavors together were great. Very fresh and light.

Great recipie except it was a little heavy on the salt. I will decrease it a little next time and I think they will be perfect. The cooked cucumbers were a suprisingly good new taste for us an...

I'm not a big cucumber person, but this is really good. I followed the directions exactly and followed other reviewers suggestions about adding garlic powder and Parmesan cheese. This recipe w...

The sauce on these was good, but I didn't really care for the cucumbers cooked.

I thought this was at least a different way to use up the cucumbers from the garden. Very interesting. We actually needed to add salt at the table because the sauce needed it.
