From Holly Nilsson on Spend with Pennies
Ingredients
1 long English cucumber
1/2 lb medium sized pasta (penne or rotini)
1/2 sweet white onion
Dressing
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons fresh dill (or 2 tsp dried)
2 tablespoons white or apple cider vinegar
pepper to taste
 
Directions
1. Combine all dressing ingredients in a small bowl and mix well. Set aside.
2. Thinly slice onion and place in a bowl of cold water. (see note)
3. Cook pasta al dente according to package directions. Run under cold water to stop cooking.
4. Cut cucumber in half lengthwise and remove seeds using a spoon. Slice into thin slices.
5. Toss all ingredients in a large bowl. Let sit at least 40 minutes before serving.
 
Notes:
Soaking the onions in cold water is optional but takes a bit of the "bite" out of the onion.
