Our garden cucumbers are almost done so I needed to try one last cucumber recipe. This recipe has a delicious creamy taste with only 5 ingredients. I love sour cream but I have never mixed it with cucumbers (we always use Miracle Whip). This doesn’t take long to make and it is a great side dish for family or guests.

  1. I make cream cheese and Tuna with finely sliced cucumber and then add the juice of a lime.Crack black pepper over it mix and serve as side dish. The amount of black pepper corns will depend on your taste. Delicious I think as it was invented by necessity one night long ago when the electricity failed and guests arrived at dinner. I made this fast to occupy them whilst lighting the wood burning oven to cook on top six steaks. We had a great night with fine food and company and candles all night even though power came back half way through serving. I used all I could find and my sister told me it was funny concoction until she tried it. fish with cheese and lime juice would not be favoured but I did not tell them and it was all gone by the time I cooked the meat. My sister winked .later all the ladies left the men and asked me what it was. I asked first did they like it. You bet they did. I call it now “power mad delicious “and all know what it is.
