Without the sour cream, this is very close (but even better, I have to admit) than a cucumber salad that my mom used to make, and it always makes me think of summer (probably because we never had cucumbers any other time of the year - except in pickles). My changes were to decrease the sugar a bit (probably by 1/3), and I also sliced 1/2 onion very thinly and "pickled" it with the cucumber - just 'cause that's how mom did it! (Hint - slice the onions while the brine is cooking, and pour the brine over the onions to get them "pickling" while you slice the cukes; probably wouldn't need to do this if you had a sweet onion.)
