Southern Style Cucumber Salad

 My Southern Aunt made this at every family gathering, I dont have HER recipe but this is my interpretation.

Southern Style Cucumber Salad

2 Japanese cucumbers, peeled
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup full fat sour cream
3 T Sugar
3-4 T vinegar
Few drops green food color

Put the cucumbers and onion in a bowl and add 2 tablespoons of vinegar and sprinkle with 1/4th teaspoon salt and toss. Let stand for 30 minutes. 
Rinse off and drain.
Add the Sour Cream, Food Color, another 1 T vinegar and 3 T Sugar. Toss and serve.

There is no dill in this recipe, but it looked lonely without a garnish.
