"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

Ingredients:  
Cucumber (1 big one is roughly enough for 2 people)
Sour cream (I use about 1/2 of a regular size sour cream for 2
people)
Salt
Pepper
Vinegar
Fresh Dill

Directions:
Directions:
Peel the cucumber and slice it on a mandolin. Then just mix in
sour
cream, salt and pepper to taste, 1/2 tbsp vinegar, finely
chopped
dill. There are no true measurements to the ingredients, it
basically
is according to your taste. I like a lot of sour cream, so I put a
lot in. You can add a pinch of sugar as well. Be careful with
the
vinegar, too much could make it taste too much like vinegar.
The
cucumber will lose water while you're mixing so it will become
pretty
liquid. The salad tastes better if you leave it in the fridge for a
few hours before serving. This is a great summer salad. Very
refreshing!
