Cucumber Salad with Sour Cream and Chives (German Gurkensalat)

Peel cucumbers and slice them paper thin (or as thinly as possible), and drain if watery.
In a medium bowl, mix together the sour cream and chives. Add cucumber slices and stir gently to coat. Season to taste with salt (go easy on the salt) and pepper.
