Prep/Total Time: 20 min.

This side really sparks up a meal and goes fairly well with everything from grilled steak to tuna salad. I like to serve it in individual, lettuce-lined glass bowls with a sour cream star piped on top and a sprinkling of dill.—Karen Ann Bland, Gove, Kansas


  • 2 medium cucumbers, thinly sliced
  • 4 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons snipped fresh dill
  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon prepared mustard
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon milk, optional
  • 3 small tomatoes, sliced


  1. In a large bowl, combine the cucumbers, onions and parsley. In a small bowl, combine the sour cream, dill, vinegar, salt, mustard and pepper. Stir in milk if a thinner dressing is desired. Pour over cucumber mixture and toss to coat. Divide among eight salad plates; top with tomatoes.
