"A delicious mix of cream, onions, and cucumbers to warm the soul. Great with chicken! Substitute sweet heavy cream or plain yogurt for sour cream if you'd like. "

The first time I made this recipe I was really impressed the taste of this vegetable cooked. When I reheated the leftovers the cream separated a bit and gave it almost a cheesy consistency and flavor. So the next time I made this I added a few tablespoons of Parmesan cheese sprinkled over it at the end of cooking and the flavor was even better. I also added a minced clove of garlic to the onions when cooking for extra flavor. I'm thinking this might also be a good base for tomato sauce instead of the cream for and Italian flavor.
This provided a pleasantly cool contrast to the rather spicy 'Stuffed Cod Wrapped in Bacon' I made tonight, but other than that, we weren't overly wowed. Thanks anyway, molly!
I have been reading the reviews and some have said that this recipe is too salty. You only need to salt the cucumbers if they are soft. If your cuc's are a little old, salt them, then drain them in a colander and rinse with water. If they are ripe and fresh there is no need for the salt. Just a side note!
I have always loved trying new and unexpected recipes! That amount of salt is probably meant to be sprinkled on the cucumbers, in a colander, so that they will drain their excess water. I always rinse the drained cucumbers and pat dry before proceeding with the recipe. Maybe, the heavy cream was meant to be a substitute for the sour cream. I would imagine that using both would be very good. I used much more than a pinch of dill. Even our most dubious tasters rated it highly!
Simple and delicious. I was a bit leary of cooking cucumbers, but it turned out great. I used the seedless "English" cucumbers. They cook up better and have less moisture. I have actually made this several times, but never reviewed them.
I loved it! All the flavors together were great. Very fresh and light.
Great recipie except it was a little heavy on the salt. I will decrease it a little next time and I think they will be perfect. The cooked cucumbers were a suprisingly good new taste for us and the sauce was fantastic. I used 1/2 sour cream and 1/2 heavy cream as suggested...mmmmmm! Add plenty of dill as specified and this would also make a great sauce to accompany blackened salmon as well!
I'm not a big cucumber person, but this is really good. I followed the directions exactly and followed other reviewers suggestions about adding garlic powder and Parmesan cheese. This recipe will be used again and again this summer!
