Move over, plain jane cucumber salad! This salad makes an entrance with unusual chunks of blue cheese tossed in for a creamy burst of flavor. If blue cheese is too strong for you, try a mild feta and a squirt of lemon! When testing this recipe, both light and regular sour cream held up well, while the fat free version tended to water out quickly.

I just didn't care for the flavor combination. I will save the blue cheese for other salads and leave it out of the cucumber salad. Read More

I made this to go with some buffalo hot wings... it was perfect! The sour cream and blue cheese with the crisp coolness of cucumbers went perfectly. We thought this was much better than simply using a blue cheese dipping sauce. I didn't change anything from the recipe, but I have to admit I don't usually measure these types of recipes. Thanks for a great new way to accompany wings! Read More

You gotta like bleu cheese to like these cucumbers. I made a half a recipe because I'm the only one in this house who likes it! These cucumbers and onions are very good but boy do they have a bite to them. Next time I'm going to cut back on the bleu cheese just a little. Thanks for sharing a different type of creamed cucumbers. Read More

I made this for a family dinner because it looked good and was something out of the norm. I added a little bit more blue cheese then the recipe called for I think it's a taste preference (my family loves blue cheese). It was the first dish gone everybody loved it and wanted the recipe...Definitely a keeper :) Read More

I love cukes and blue cheese but had never had this type of salad before. That has changed forever. It was a crowd pleaser at our Thanksgiving table and is going to be a recipe I make frequently throughout the year as well. I used English cukes which have no seeds. I did peel them but I am sure that is not needed. I replaced the onion with shallots and having no white pepper just used black. Only a purist would tell and then it would be difficult due to the dill. I made it the day before so it had ample time for the flavors to marry. Excellent salad and one you should try soon. This was just one of four five star dishes on our Thanksgiving table this year. Thank you Allrecipes.com and all those who contribute. I am a devoted fan. Read More

Great cool creamy summer salad. I make a salad very similar to this just no blue cheese. We all love a good blue cheese and it was a terrific addition. I added the exact amount called for and thought it was perfect. Of course my cukes were pretty large. Some caterpillars ate my whole dill bush so I had to use dry dill worked fine but I know fresh would be much better. We served this along side Chipotle burgers on this site. Read More

Very good! Nice combo of flavors and we really enjoyed the slight sweetness from the sugar w/ the salty blue cheese...VERY refreshing and a great side to dinner tonight! I kinda decided on this last minute so I didn't get to allow my cukes to drain much b/c I wanted to get this in the fridge to blend the flavors so mine was a little runnier but that was my fault and I will plan ahead for it next time YUM! Thanks for sharing.:) Read More
