A tasty late summer salad.


  • 3-4 Tomatoes
  • 2-3 Cucumbers
  • 1/2 cup Green onions or chives
  • 2 Tbsp fresh Dill
  • 3/4 cup Sour Cream (OPTIONAL)
  • Sea salt to taste
  • White pepper to taste


  1. Quarter the tomatoes lighty salt to bring out the flavor.
  2. Cut the cucumbers in half, remove the seeds (optional), then slice into 1/4 inch wide pieces.
  3. Add sour cream. (OPTIONAL)
  4. Add green onions/chives to taste.
  5. Add fresh dill to taste.
  6. Add sea salt to taste
  7. Add white pepper to taste.
  8. Stir or fold gently to avoid breaking up the tomatoes
  9. Chill in fridge for 10 minutes
  10. Serve; sometimes a tiny bit more salt brings out the flavors
  11. Variations: I like to use heirloom tomatoes for their depth of flavor, English cucumbers for their bold flavors, all natural sour cream, and sometimes parsley instead of dill. Try with a thin slice of Latvian sour dough or rye bread.The ratio of ingredients can be adjusted any way you like. I tend to eyeball it.
