Cucumber Salad

There are no hard rules with this one.  You can do cucumbers only or toss in what every your garden has plenty of.  Just wait to mix the dressing to your veggies at the very end of the process and serve immediately.
1 large cucumber
1 tsp coarse sea salt
1 Tbsp light sour cream
1 tsp finely chopped onion
1 tsp fresh dill, chopped
1 tsp vinegar
1 tsp sugar
I don't peel my cucumbers but you can if you like.  Slice cucumber into thin slices, place into a colander and sprinkle with coarse sea salt. Set on something to catch the water that drains off, and set aside. 
Mix together sour cream, onion, dill, vinegar, and sugar. Cover and place in fridge.
Let cucumbers drain and dressing chill for at least an hour, up to 2 hours.
Before serving, rinse cucumbers under running water briefly. Pat dry with paper towel.  Toss dressing with cucumbers and serve.
