  1. 2 seedless cucumbers, peeled and cut into 6-inch lengths
  2. Salt
  3. 1/4 cup sour cream
  4. 1 shallot, minced
  5. 1/2 tablespoon Champagne vinegar
  6. Freshly ground white pepper
  7. 2 tablespoons chopped dill
  1. Using a julienne slicer, cut the cucumbers lengthwise into spaghetti-like strips, stopping when you get to the watery centers. In a bowl, sprinkle the cucumbers with salt and knead gently to soften. Rinse the cucumbers and squeeze out any excess moisture. In a bowl, whisk the sour cream with the shallot and vinegar. Season with salt and white pepper, fold in the cucumber and dill and serve.
