"This is a wonderful way to use up all those cucumbers that seem to be ready at the same time," writes Shirley Kidd of New London, Minnesota. "I's so refreshing on hot summer days."

  • 1/2 cup reduced-fat sour cream
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon dill weed
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon white pepper
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • Fresh dill, optional

  2. Refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight. Garnish with cucumber slices and, if desired, fresh dill.
