Sour Cream Cucumber Salad

Sour Cream Cucumber Salad

"'ONE OF the staples of Ukrainian cooking is sour cream. This combination of sour cream and cucumbers makes a very tasty salad. During the summer we use cucumbers from our garden for that wonderfully fresh, crunchy taste. But store-bought cucumbers work almost as well, so we enjoy this dish year-around--it goes especially well with meat dishes.'"

I took this to a 4th of July party and everyone loved it. Not only was it tasty, but it was a great alternative to all of the mayo based, high calorie salads at family picnics. The only modifica...

Hey y'all! I loved this salad, BUT I have to agree with the other reviewer that said it needed just a little more of something. I took their advice and I added 2 tablespoons of Ranch dressing ...

I am Hungarian, and this is similar to my native recipe, except we add a dash of sugar to ours, and use Sweet Onion instead of green onion.

I added a just under a teaspoon of dill weed and I used reduced fat sour cream. YUM! My husband especially liked this salad.

Yes! No sugar and not overly vinegary! Loved it. I'm familiar with the suggestion to salt the cucumbers beforehand so they release some of their excess water and it's a good one, but when th...

I love cucumber salad. I do not use green onion and I add a little sugar. I have also used cider vinegar. This is great over baked or boiled potatoes.

I made this as the recipe stated. Sometimes cucumber salad can be boring but I wouldn't change a thing with this one. This was excellent and I don't give out five stars lightly.
