Blue Cucumber Salad

Rated as 4.55 out of 5 Stars

"Move over, plain jane cucumber salad! This salad makes an entrance with unusual chunks of blue cheese tossed in for a creamy burst of flavor. If blue cheese is too strong for you, try a mild feta and a squirt of lemon! When testing this recipe, both light and regular sour cream held up well, while the fat free version tended to water out quickly."

  1. With a spoon, scoop out the seeds from the cucumber halves. Slice the cucumbers into thick half moons, and place the slices on a plate on paper towels. Sprinkle 1/2 teaspoon of salt over the cucumber slices, and set aside.
  2. Place the onion, sour cream, white wine vinegar, dill, sugar, and white pepper in a bowl, and mix until well combined. Lightly stir in the blue cheese. Pat the cucumber slices dry with paper towels, and lightly mix them into the salad. Refrigerate at least 1 hour before serving; season to taste with salt just before serving.

Made this for the first time today. Very easy, and very tasty!! Used black pepper instead of white, and added more blue cheese than called for.

I just didn't care for the flavor combination. I will save the blue cheese for other salads and leave it out of the cucumber salad.
