Ukrainian Tomato and Cucumber Salad with Sour Cream Dressing

Ukrainian Tomato and Cucumber Salad with Sour Cream Dressing

This simple salad with tomatoes and cucumbers is very popular in Ukraine, and I don’t see any reasons why it wouldn’t be liked in any other country which grows tomatoes, cucumbers, dill and sour cream with onions and garlic.

As opposite to summer salad with tomato and cucumbers with vegetable oil based dressing, this one uses sour cream and mayonnaise.

If you are trying to cut on calories – use mix of sour cream and low calorie yoghurt, or just yoghurt as a base for dressing, but, believe me, this salad tastes the best with real sour cream.

Ingredients:


How to prepare, step-by-step:

  1. Prepare ingredients: rinse tomatoes, cucumbers and dill; any kind of cucumbers and tomatoes will work good for this salad, just make sure the ratio of both is more or less the same; if you like it spicy use 2 garlic cloves, I ended up using just one:

Loved the look and sound of this recipe but I can’t seem to find that pesky print button on the top of the recipe.
