Cool Off with a Refreshing Summer Salad

Olde Bill's Comments: This recipe is perfect for cooling off in the summer. Draining cucumbers before serving is a must.  This will keep the sour cream mixture from becoming watery and thin. You can also place diced cucumber in a zip-lock bag and lots of paper towels to absorb liquid, refrigerate until used. Try adding thinly sliced radish or 1/4 cup diced red bell pepper or finely chopped jalapeno for color and added flavor. If using something other than roma tomatoes, drain well in a colander or salad will be watery.

Garden Fresh Cucumber and Tomato Salad

2 medium-large cucumbers, peeled, quartered lengthwise and seeded 1 cup (8 ounces) low-fat or regular sour cream (not fat-free) 1 small red or yellow onion, chopped (1 cup) 2 Roma tomatoes, seeded and diced (about 1 cup) 3 tablespoons finely chopped cilantro, or to taste (optional but recommended) 4 teaspoons Olde Westport Border Bandito's Salsa Spice Blend 1/4 teaspoon each salt and coarse ground black epper, or to taste

Cut cucumber into bite-size pieces (about 3 1/2 cups), place in a colander, lightly sprinkle with salt, drain for 1 hour in refrigerator. In a small bowl, blend sour cream, onion, tomatoes, cilantro, Olde Westport Border Bandito's Salsa Spice Blend, salt and pepper to taste. Seal bowl and refigerate until ready to serve. About 15 minutes before serving, place well-drained cucumbers in a serving dish, stir in sour cream mixture (mix only what will be used for dinner).
