While this worked surprisingly well I feel like there is a flavor boost missing and I can't quite decide what it may be. I added finely sliced red onion but it still needs something. This is a good base and I will keep fooling with it. Thanks Pugmama. Read More

I'd swap out the evaporated milk with a little Miracle Whip or mayo mixed with more sour cream and a lot of dill. Read More

This is good old fashioned comfort food. I made as directed except for adding some sliced green onions and radishes I wanted to use up. I might throw in some fresh herbs next time. Thanks for taking me back to my grandmas kitchen! Read More

Not a bad basic receipt I added one cup plain yogurt and dill to taste about one half teaspoon for my liking. It will be saucy to aide in the cucumbers sweating slice with then sprinkle with salt and let rest while making sauce. Read More

Not bad I added some dill. I only had two large cucumbers so I used less condensed milk. The kids thought it tasted like european cucumber salad. Easy to make. Read More
