Cucumber Salad with Sour Cream

1 cucumber peeled and thinly sliced
salt
2 tablespoons vinegar
1 taablespoon superfine sugar (optional)
4 tablespoons sour cream

Sprinkle the cucumber with plenty of salt and leave to drain in a colander for at least 1/2 hour until it softens and loses it's
juices. Then rinse in cold water and drain. Mix the vinegar with
the sugar and sour cream and pour over the cucumber slices. Mix well.

When my grandmother made this she would pick fresh cucumbers from the garden, slice them and salt them, let them sit for 1/2 hour to drain, rinse them and add some thinly sliced white onion. She would put them into a large bowl and add vinegar and sour cream (no sugar for ours) and stir it all up - no measuring.
