Blue cheese and cucumber salad

    Blue cheese dresses up an ordinary cucumber salad to make a lovely summer staple. If blue cheese isn't for you, try a mild feta cheese instead, and add a squirt of lemon juice. Perfect for a picnic!

    1. With a spoon, scoop out the seeds from the cucumber halves. Slice the cucumbers into thick half moons, and place the slices on a plate on kitchen paper. Sprinkle 1/2 teaspoon of salt over the cucumber slices, and set aside.
    2. Place the onion, soured cream, white wine vinegar, dill, sugar and white pepper in a bowl, and mix until well combined. Lightly stir in the blue cheese.

    Made this for the first time today. Very easy, and very tasty!! Used black pepper instead of white, and added more blue cheese than called for.  -  06 Sep 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    You gotta like bleu cheese to like these cucumbers. I made a half a recipe because I'm the only one in this house who likes it! These cucumbers and onions are very good, but, boy do they have a bite to them. Next time I'm going to cut back on the bleu cheese just a little. Thanks for sharing a different type of creamed cucumbers.  -  19 Jul 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
