Cucumber salad with sauce. Step by step recipe

  1. Wash the cucumbers, pat dry with excess paper towel. Cut the tail and nose, cut into rings.
  2. Peel and cut the onion into rings or half rings.
  3. Put in a bowl in layers, alternating, sprinkling with salt (cucumbers, onions, cucumbers, etc.), put in the refrigerator for a couple of hours so that the juice comes off. Cucumbers will become a little softer, but at the same time their crunch will remain and a more pronounced aroma will appear.
  4. Prepare the sauce: mix sour cream, sugar, pepper, balsamic vinegar and finely chopped dill. Mix well.
  5. Get vegetables, drain the resulting juice, pour in the sauce, mix and try. Since the vegetables themselves were salted, not the sauce, it may not be enough salt, so add salt. If necessary, adjust the taste by adding sour cream.
  6. Refrigerate for 20-30 minutes.
