This is a simple and quick salad made with cucumbers and onions which we usually have in our kitchens. The dressing is made with sour cream, honey, salt and pepper.
I am using some home grown microgreens also in this salad as they add to the nutrition. They can be easily grown at home using a mixture of seeds like flax seeds, chia seeds, mustard seeds, sesame seeds or grains like jowar, bajra, wheat. You also get them in the stores easily these days.

Cucumbers .......... 1
Onion ....................1
Micro greens ....... handful
Sour cream ......... 2 tbsps
White vinegar ..... 1 tbsp
Honey ................ 1 tsp
Crushed black pepper .... 2-3 pinches
Salt ..................... as needed

1. Peel the cucumber and cut into round slices. You may use unpeeled one if you like.
2. Peel the onion, cut into round slices and separate them into rings. Select a small onion for this.
3. Marinate the onion rings with little salt and vinegar for few minutes.
4. Mix the cucumber and onion in a platter. Add some microgreens.
5. Make the dressing by mixing the sour cream, honey and little black pepper. Add a spoon of water to make it smooth and creamy.
6. Mix the dressing with the onion, cucumber and microgreens just before serving.
7. Dish it out into a serving bowl or plate and sprinkle little black pepper on top.
8. Garnish with microgreens.
