Cucumber Dill Salad

This is made all the freaking time in my house.
It's so simple, and so insanely delicious.
It's probably not even a "real" recipe, but that's OK by me.

I call it cucumber dill for obvious reason, but sometimes I mix in some tomato and lettuce and call it a dill salad.

One year, on Thanksgiving, I was just craving I made it to bring to my aunt and uncles.
My second oldest cousin happened to be sitting at the same table as me that year. He is out of the loop enough not to know who brought what (meaning: he is a guy, he just shows up to eat) .
He took a big bite, sat there for a second.,.then went in for another bite. Then, out of nowhere, I got one of the biggest compliments he could have given.

"This tastes like something Gram would have made"
Oh did my heart just flutter!!

Our great grandmother was the queen of comfort food! Nothing fancy, everything simple and perfect.

Thanks cousin. You made my year!

1 Cucumber (diced)
¼ Cup sour cream
