Cucumber and Tomato salad

I've got a Joy of Cooking cookbook that my aunt got when she married back in 1985. I seriously hope they've updated the book since then because it's a pain in the butt to read and there are very few pictures so I never really know if the recipe actually turned out looking like it's supposed to. This recipe is adaption of one their "hard to read ones". This recipe can be high in calories or low, depending on whether you use the full fat sour cream. I chose to use fat free sour cream which is 20 calories per serving. It's really light and the taste is subtle. It's an awesome choice for a light salad on a hot summer day.

  • 1 long cucumber, sliced
  • 1 large tomato (cut in four pieces and then slice)
  • 1 cup of sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon of dill weed
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon shredded onion
  • 1 tablespoon green pepper, chopped
  1. Mix sour cream, dill weed, salt, onion and green pepper.
  2. Combine tomatoes and cucumbers in a bowl.
  3. Either add sauce to tomatoes and cucumbers or dish up vegetables and dip into sauce.
