I had to use 2 (what I consider regular size) cucumbers to handle all the dressing the recipe makes and I used the whole stalk of celery. I didn't have yogurt so I used all sour cream. I also didn't have a lime so I used a lemon. It was a good light tasting salad. I will try it again with lime. Update- I served this to my sister and she loved it. I also tried it again with lime and I liked it both ways. Read More

It was okay. A bit bland and too runny for our liking. I wouldn't make it again. Read More

We LOVED this! I used baby cukes (maybe 4) extra sour cream in place of the yogurt b/c I had none on hand and omitted the celery (personal preference). I can't believe it but I totally forgot the vinegar in this lol but it was wonderful w/o it and stayed more on thick side rather than liquid-y which we loved. I will def be making this again (the same way I did today) YUM! Thanks for sharing.:) Read More

I grow my own cucumbers and make my own goat milk yogurt so this recipe suited what I had on hand. The only change I made was using all drained yogurt instead of adding the sour cream. Everything else was the same. I have made this twice doubling and tripling the the recipe and we ate every bit It is a delicious way to use my bumper crop and holds in the refrigerator for several days. Read More

I rate this between 4 5. One I didnt have celery so I had to leave it out. However I cant imagine only using a 1/2 a cucumber. I also really don't care for a lot of dressing so I used 1 medium cucumber and halved the dressing. I used a garden cucumber and peeled and de-seeded it. I cut the onion and cucumber between 1/8 1/4 inch slices as it really didnt say. I used non fat yogurt reduced fat sour cream but regular mayo which was what I had. Made as written here I got 3 servings at approximately 78 calories each. Overall it was a little more vinegary or tart than I like. For the lime juice I used 1 1/2 tsp. when I halved it. I might test a little less white vinegar though next time. However I liked the dill flavor and that the dressing was not real thick. I would still make this again. Note: Second time making and still halving the dressing I only did 1 Tblsp of white vinegar instead of 2 and that worked perfect. May even add another half a cucumber due to extra dressing. Read More

I used sour cream in place of the yogurt. I used a whole cucumber and put in two teaspoons of dill. We loved it! It's definitely a repeat recipe. Read More

Very tasty salad thank you. I always buy Persian cucumbers as we like them much better than "regular" ones (tender skin & meatier flesh). Since they're a lot smaller and thinner I used 4. I only made two minor changes - omitted sour cream and just doubled the yogurt (Greek) and used 2 packets of Splenda instead of sugar because I'm cutting carbs. I doubt this made any difference in taste at all in this recipe. Read More
