Dill Weed


Jar, 1/2 Cup, 0.8 oz.


  • 2 cucumbers, peeled and thinly sliced

  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 2 teaspoons salt

  • dried or fresh parsley to taste (optional)

Preparation Instructions:

place the sliced cucmbers in a bowl with lid

The salt will draw out the water from the cucumbers and thin the dressing considerably. The dressing should be thin and tart.
