Creamy Dill Cucumbers

This cucumber salad is quite delish!
I usually serve it immediately after preparing it.

Creamy Dill Cucumbers

6-7 medium size cucumbers, peeled & sliced thin
2 Tbsp. finely chopped red or white onion
2 Tbsp. thinly sliced green onions (or use red onion)
1 cup mayonnaise
1 cup sour cream
1 (1-oz.) packet Hidden Valley Ranch Salad Dressing Mix
1-1/2 tsp. dried dill weed
1/2 tsp. celery seed
1/4 tsp. black pepper, plus 1/8 tsp. black pepper

In a large bowl mix together, the mayonnaise, sour cream, ranch dressing mix, dill weed, celery seed, plus the 1/4 teaspoon and 1/8 teaspoon of black pepper.

Add the sliced cucumbers and onion, and gently stir to mix everything together.

Serve salad immediately.

Makes: 8-10 servings

Note: I have made this salad twice, once using chopped white onion, and thinly sliced green onion. The second time I made this salad, I added 4 tablespoons of finely chopped red onion, in place of the white and green onion, and that tasted great in the salad too! Also, when I added the sliced cucumbers, they were cucumbers I had in the refrigerator, which help the salad to stay cool.
