Papa Joe's Cucumber and Red Onion Soup

  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Soups, Vegetables

 Ingredients List

  • 5 c Cucumbers
  • 3 c Red onions
  • 6 c Sour cream
  • 2 tb Salt
  • 3 tb Sugar
  • 1/2 c Fresh dill weed- chopped
  • 1/2 c Lemon juice


This is from Alice Brock at Alice's Restaurant. Yes, THAT one.

Peel and slice cucumbers as thin as you can. Peel and slice red onions
thin as you can. (It's easier if you cut the onion in half and slice cut
side down)

Use a deep 1 gallon bowl or crock. Alternate layers of cukes and onions
with sprinkles of the salt and sugar between each layer. This will draw out
the juices that make it soup. Pile sour cream on top. DO NOT STIR. Cover
and refrigerate for 24 hours or more.

To serve, add the fresh dill weed and lemon juice and stir it up. Add more
lemon juice or sugar to taste.

Cool and refreshing, this is just perfect when it is too hot to cook, and
cucumbers are running wild.
