Helen’s Cucumber Salad

2 cups thinly sliced cucumbers

1 tsp. Salt

1/2 red (or yellow)sweet onion, sliced thin

1/2 cup greek yogurt or labne

1/2 cup sour cream

Salt and pepper to taste

Sprinkle sliced cucumbers with salt and let sit for 30 minutes.  Drain off all liquid.

Mix remaining ingredients and pour over drained cukes.  Salt and pepper as you like…just be careful with the salt as the cucumbers do absorb some of it! Yiayia knows best!
