"Move over, plain jane cucumber salad! This salad makes an entrance with unusual chunks of blue cheese tossed in for a creamy burst of flavor. If blue cheese is too strong for you, try a mild feta and a squirt of lemon! When testing this recipe, both light and regular sour cream held up well, while the fat free version tended to water out quickly." — madermouse

cucumbers, peeled and sliced in half lengthwise
white onion, minced
white wine vinegar
chopped fresh dill
white pepper, or to taste
crumbled blue cheese
Made this for the first time today. Very easy, and very tasty!! Used black pepper instead of white, and added more blue cheese than called for.
I made this for a family dinner because it looked good and was something out of the norm. I added a little bit more blue cheese then the recipe called for I think it's a taste preference (my family loves blue cheese). It was the first dish gone everybody loved it and wanted the recipe...Definitely a keeper :)
You gotta like bleu cheese to like these cucumbers. I made a half a recipe because I'm the only one in this house who likes it! These cucumbers and onions are very good, but, boy do they have a bite to them. Next time I'm going to cut back on the bleu cheese just a little. Thanks for sharing a different type of creamed cucumbers.
Very good! Nice combo of flavors and we really enjoyed the slight sweetness from the sugar w/ the salty blue cheese...VERY refreshing and a great side to dinner tonight! I kinda decided on this last minute, so I didn't get to allow my cukes to drain much, b/c I wanted to get this in the fridge to blend the flavors, so mine was a little runnier, but that was my fault and I will plan ahead for it next time~YUM! Thanks for sharing. :)
Great cool creamy summer salad. I make a salad very similar to this, just no blue cheese. We all love a good blue cheese and it was a terrific addition. I added the exact amount called for and thought it was perfect. Of course my cukes were pretty large. Some caterpillars ate my whole dill bush so I had to use dry dill, worked fine, but I know fresh would be much better. We served this along side Chipotle burgers on this site.
