    Ok, so I saw on this thread
    http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/for...cucumber+salad
    a great recipie for jim's cucumber salad. So here's my take on it. The only thing I did different was the wife couldn't find fresh dill at the store so she bought it in a tube. Never tried it before, but it was fine.

    Here's the recipie off of chisoxjim's thread.
    Cucumber salad:

    wet ingredients:
    4 cloves of garlic - minced
    7 pieces of dill taken off the stem, and chopped
    1/4 cup cider vinegar
    2 tsp sugar
    black pepper & kosher salt to taste
    1 cup sour cream
    6 tbsp Kraft mayo

    mixed this, and set it aside

    sliced 3 cucumbers thin(picked at a local farm Saturday)
    sliced 2 small onions thin(picked at a local farm Saturday)
    sliced the green tops of the onions(picked at a local farm Saturday)

    combined the above with the wet, and refrigerated for a few hours.

    Here's my photos...

    and the wife. Not only did I get her to chop the veggies, but I also snapped a photo of her doing it without her shoving the camera up my nether regions. It's my birthday today, so she has to be nice to me.

    I just did a small taste. I think the combo of the sour cream and the vinegar is a bit much for me. I'll let it sit for a while and maybe add a little more sugar befor dinner.

    Hope you all enjoy this recipie. Thanks chisoxjim!

    nice,

    the vinegar mellows out after it sits, and the sugar kicks in. I findi it tasted like a deconstructed gyos sauce.

    Thanks for the birthday wishes. I appreciate that.

    Jim, you were right, I'm glad I didn't mess with it. It did mellow out considerably and was very good just as your recipie called for. I won't change a thing. Kudos to you on a great recipie. Thank you for posting this.

    Yes she did. We like them better that way. But know lots of people who don't. We just use a potato peeler. It slides right off.
