I haven't made this particular recipe but I make one remarkably similar so thought I might suggest draining the cukes on a paper towel using 1/2c sour cream & 1/2c yogurt & the ingredient I believe you're missing is sugar (to taste). You'll be pleasantly surprised at the difference it'll make. Enjoy. Read More

I de-seeded the cucumber as others suggested but it was still watery. I don't think i will make this again. Read More

Runny but tasty and a bit bland. Needs dill or cayenne or something sprightly. A little anchovy paste would make it Ceasaresque. Fresh savory would be good too. A lot of the runnyness is from over blending - stop at the somewhat chunky Gaspacho stage and resist the temptation to hit the liquify button otherwise you have... By golly you have liquid cucumbers! 'Sweat' the cucumbers - peel slice in half _lengthwise_ core and cut halves into 1" crescents. Toss with a little salt and let pieces sweat in a collandar for a minimum 1 hr. Shake off the sweat (do not rinse it's not salty any more) and queeze out whatever more water you can. Blend this and it will not be runny. Read More

I did seed the cucumber which appears to have eliminated the "runny" problem that another person described. All in all I enjoyed this dressing very much. It's a great lite summer dressing. Read More

This does turn out rather runny and I'd probably remove the seeds next time. But it works pretty well if you actually toss the salad in the dressing and coat the vegetables. Coincedentally, I found out that it's really tasty on potato chips as well. Read More

I thought this recipe sounded great...very summery and light...but was very disappointed. I thought it was quite bland and couldn't quite figure out what it needed. But to be fair I did substitute regular pepper for white (didn't have any white on hand)and didn't measure all ingredients exactly. Still I don't think that would have made a huge difference as I did use all ingredients listed and used close to the amount recommended. Read More

sorry but i didn't like this dressing at all. it was runny but that makes it easier to use a small amount. it was gritty and too strong in the pepper and garlic dept. i will not make this again. Read More

This dressing was okay but lacked flavor. I tried adding various spices but to no avail. Even after chilling overnight the flavor did not intensify. Read More

Was very runny. Should I have seeded the cucumber? The recipe did not say. Read More
