Easy and delicious! I was a bit skeptical because I'm used to using sour cream but I wanted to give this a try. I cut the recipe in half and used Hellman's light mayo and white wine vinegar. I added a bit of dill and this was enough dressing for a large cucumber and some thin sliced onion. Read More

We used to buy the most wonderful cucumber salad at a local deli but when it closed we were unable to find anything like it. I tried to replicate it with sour cream but it wasn't right. This is close to it! I used this recipe and it was enough for 2 large cukes. I also added dried dill and sliced vidalia onion. Thanks for the recipe it is sitting in the fridge...I can't waint until dinner time. Read More

My mother not only added thinly sliced onions but she'd soak them most of the day or overnight in brine (salt/water) solution and then drain rinse and squeeze out the liquid and then continue with the recipe sometimes creamy and other times with just the vinegar/sugar. Guess it depended on her mood or what we were having for dinner either way..it's comfort food to me! Read More

I've never before been a fan of cucumbers, but after making this recipe I'm now a convert. I did increase the amount of sugar, salt, pepper, and vinegar (I used apple cider vinegar), and I sliced up 3 cucumbers as opposed to the one that was called for. I also added some dried dill. Truly wonderful. Read More
