                         -----VEGETABLE-----
    4       lg           Unwaxed cucumbers
    1       tb           Salt
                         -----DRESSING-----
      2/3   c            Sour cream or yogurt
    2       tb           Veg. oil
    2       tb           White vinegar
    3       tb           Minced fresh dill  OR
                         2-3 ts dried
      1/2   ts           Sugar
            ds           Salt & black pepper to taste
 
   Rinse the cucumbers, but do not peel them; cut off the ends.  Using the
   tines of a fork, score the peel lengthwise.  Slice into rounds, as thin as
   you can.  Sprinkle with the tablespoon of salt and toss in a colander. Let
   the cucumbers stand and drain at room temperature for one hour.  Rise well
   to remove the salt.  Squeeze the cucumber slices dry in a clean tea towel.
   (They will be almost transparent)
   
   Combine the remaining ingredients and fold into the cucumbers.  Chill well
   before serving.  Garnish with a sprig of dill.
