Making a creamy cucumber salad -- 10 minutes

Rinse and finely slice the cucumber. You can use a mandoline if you want to slice the cucumber into equal slices. But it's perfectly fine to use a (chef's) knife and cutting board for this.

Squeeze juice from 1/2 a lemon into a bowl. Add in 125 ml sour cream and chop up a handful of fresh dill and chives. Mix together and season with some salt and pepper.
