Recipe for Cucumber and Dill Salad

This is my recipe for so called Polish Cucumber salad: simple salad with cucumbers, fresh dill and marinated onions.

Marinating onions makes them less bitter and removes most of that onion breath smell therefore this salad is great for parties, cookouts and such.

I am using balsamic vinegar and sour cream as dressing here. If you like, you can replace vinegar with lemon juice, but I somehow like vinegar better.
