Vegan Sour Cream Cucumbers

Home grown cucumbers are so much more flavorful than their store bought counterpart.  I'm fortunate enough to have a vegetable stand close by that sells fresh, homegrown produce in the spring/summer/fall.

One dish I always remember growing up was my mother's sour cream cucumbers.  They are so cool and refreshing on a hot summer day!

I dug out the frequently used recipe and pondered if I could make them vegan... and if I did, would they be any good?

I'm happy to say, that the veganized (is that a word?) recipe works... and the hubs was none the wiser that this recipe was any different (score!).

Vegan Sour Cream Cucumbers
3 cucumbers, peeled, seeded and thinly sliced
1/4 red onion, finely diced
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp pepper
2 TBS lemon juice

Combine all ingredients and mix. Chill until serving.

  1. I never heard of sour cream cucumbers but they look tasty!

  2. What a great way to use up cucumbers! I have a ton of them in my fridge right now from my garden!

  3. Homegrown cucumbers are way better. I live blocks from a Farmer's Market with fresh, local produce and LOVE the cucumbers.
    I have never heard of sour cream cucumbers, but I think I'll give this a try - it sounds great.
    Thanks so much for sharing this at Healthy Vegan Fridays - I'm pinning & sharing.

    ps. Veganized is totally a word!
