I created this sour cream based recipe after trying several made with mayo, which I am not a fan of. This is a flavorful dish!

  • 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.

  • 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.:) Read More

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. Read More
