SOUR CREAM CUCUMBER SALAD / ONION AND CUCUMBER SALAD

 

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.

Ingredients:
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

Method:
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.
