Curried Cucumbers Recipe

Curried Cucumbers Recipe

This is a variation of a cucumber salad I once enjoyed at a salad bar. I use mayonnaise to cut the tartness of the sour cream. It has a rich flavor, too! Reduce calories by using "light" sour cream and mayonnaise.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. + chilling YIELD:6-8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon lemon-pepper seasoning
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon parsley flakes
  • Hot pepper sauce to taste
  • 3 cucumbers, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1/2 medium onion, thinly sliced
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh parsley or minced chives, optional

Directions

  • 1. In a bowl, combine first seven ingredients. Toss with cucumbers and onion slices. Chill 2-3 hours.
  • 2. Stir just before serving. Adjust salt and pepper to taste; garnish with parsley if desired. Yield: 6-8 servings.
