  • 1/2 cup reduced-fat sour cream

Helpful hints

  • This is a wonderful addition to any meal, but especially beef and pork dishes.
  • Instead of using 2 common cucumbers, 1 large “English hothouse” seedless cucumber can be substituted.
  • Omit onion if desired—the cucumbers are just as tasty without it.
