  1. Spread a paper towel over a large platter. Arrange cucumber slices in a single layer atop the paper towel. Sprinkle 1/8 teaspoon salt over the cucumber slices; refrigerate at least 2 hours and up to 6 hours.
  2. Mix sour cream, green onions, white sugar, apple cider vinegar, garlic, dill, paprika, 1/8 teaspoon salt, and black pepper together in a bowl; refrigerate at least 1 hour and up to 4 hours.
  3. Pour sour cream sauce over the cucumbers and stir gently to coat.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • I sometimes like to add more garlic, as I love garlic.
  • I also sometimes add 2 to 3 chopped fresh chives for added flavor.
  • Depending on the size of your platter, you can stack layers of paper towel and cucumber slices atop one another.
  • This can be served immediately, but tastes bests after standing in refrigerator for 1 to 3 hours after mixing.

This was good! I did feel like it was a bit too sweet, so I would cut back on the sugar next time. Hubby and the girls seemed to like it, but the little guy did not. Thanks for sharing. :)

I doubled the recipe for a big BBQ and it was a hit!

Wanted something light and summery. My mom used to make this and I loved it! The perfect blend with this recipe, plus low in calories . This is a keeper

I was hoping for a dressing that was similar to tzaziki. I only added 1 1/2 T sugar and still felt it was too sweet. I would not make this again.
