Sharing my grandma’s sour cream cucumbers today, the easiest side dish that we grew up eating with all of her spring and summer meals. It’s a fresh cucumber “salad” with scallions and chives, seasoned well with salt & freshly cracked black pepper, and marinated in tangy sour cream.
As a kid, I was never a fan of dates. Just a few years ago I decided to give them another try…I couldn’t believe how wrong I was! One bite into the sweet, rich fruit, and I was changed into the biggest date-lover out there. While I usually eat a couple of them after dinner as a sweet treat, I like to come up with different ways to incorporate them into my cooking as well. This dish takes potatoes to a whole new level, and it uses dates to do so.
