Creamy Cucumber Salad is very easy to make with simple ingredients.
Chopped fresh dill weed provides a pleasant tangy flavor to the Dill Sour Cream Dressing.
The Dill Sour Cream Dressing is thick when the salad is served immediately.
After about 1 hour in the fridge, water from the cucumbers will make the Dill Sour Cream Dressing thin. Although it tastes good, add more seasonings if desired.

How To Read & Follow A Recipe: Tips for Beginners
Reading a recipe is an important life skill that requires properly reading a recipe’s ingredients, and instructions. Plus, knowing how to prep ingredients and what equipment to use.
Start with clean hands and organized kitchen. Wash hands thoroughly. Make sure kitchen and countertops are clean before making a recipe.
Create a relaxing environment. Play favorite music while in the kitchen. I love listening to classical or gospel music.
Read the entire recipe so you understand it and to make sure you have each ingredient.
If you see ingredient that you and your family don’t use for whatever reason, use a substitute.
Watch Recipe Videos. If you’re a visual learner (like me), watching a video tutorial is a great way to see how a recipe is made.
Mise en place is a super time saver. This French cooking term translates as “putting in place.” It means prepping/measuring ingredients and chopping food before you start cooking.
Make notes in your recipe. Note any special prep instructions, cooking time, ingredients omitted, favorite substitutions, and creative twists.
Notes will be very helpful the next time you make this recipe.
The Dill Sour Cream Dressing is a tasty dip for smoked/barbecue ribs, corn chips, potato chips, Ritz crackers or whatever you prefer.
