Cucumber and Cabbage Salad (it's a keeper!)

Want to know what happens when you make an incredibly bright, colorful and delicious side dish for dinner, early in the day?  It becomes lunch.  

And now I have to come up with a new side dish for dinner tonight...  yep, I ate the whole thing.  

Originally I was going to throw together a regular cucumber and onion salad that I make pretty often.  However, our whole family has been on a huge shredded cabbage kick for the past couple months and my family even prefer to put it on their sandwiches instead of lettuce now.   So I ended up using cabbage as well as cucumbers and red onion.  I used sugar substitutes but yes, you can use sugar of course! 

Cucumber and Cabbage Salad

4 cups cucumbers, sliced & shredded cabbage or bought cole slaw mix
1/2 a red onion, sliced
1/2 t salt
2-3 T apple cider vinegar
3 T sugar or substitute sweetener to equal
1/2 c mayonnaise
2 T sour cream

Place the vegetables in a bowl.  In a smaller bowl whisk together the mayonnaise, sour cream, apple cider vinegar, sweetener and salt.  Pour over the vegetables.  Best if chilled at least an hour but can be served immediately if needed.
