Cold Cucumber Salad

Sour cream and fresh dill are great companions to the cucumber in this summer side dish salad. My mom always made this for every backyard party, and I would place heaping spoonfuls on my plate. This salad, to me, is what summer is all about. It's easy, simple, but full of flavor.
