This is my simplest and easiest recipe yet for cucumber salad, my specialty! If you're not a sour cream fan, substituting plain yogurt works great.

The lemon gives this salad just enough of a tang! But go easy on the olive oil or it over powers the flavor. Read More

We loved this recipe with a few changes. I think the lemon juice made it. I decreased the sour cream to 1 cup and added even a bit more lemon juice. I also agree with the fact that if you use dry mint you need to be generous. I also added diced onion. I will make this again and again. I also left the olive oil out. Thanks. Read More

I can't bring myself to rate a recipe badly. I think it takes a lot of guts to post one for thousands of strangers to judge. Having said that as written this didn't work for me. Obviously one cup of sour cream per cuke is over the top & I added it a spoonful at a time until everything was just lightly coated. I liked the addition of mint that was a nice touch but after tasting I also added fresh dill & cracked black pepper. Not bad just not something I'll make again. Thanks for letting me try it though:o) Read More

Very refreshing. I cut waaaaaaaaayyy back on the sour cream and added a few more seasonings. The grocery store didn't have any mint on hand so I had to leave it out but it was still very tasty! Read More

The hint of mint in the sour cream gives this dish a "sweet & sour" taste! Read More

This was very easy and pretty good. I only had fat-free sour cream around (and no mint) and it turned out quite well. It was a bit runny for my taste so I think slightly less sour cream/yogurt would be better. Also it tastes really good with anything curry! Read More
