FOR A change of pace, I like to serve these stuffed cucumbers in place of a lettuce salad.
They're really refreshing, and a touch of French dressing makes them a colorful addition to any meal.

It’s been a tradition at our house to serve this dish with the other Hungarian specialties my mom learned to make from the women at church. It’s especially good during the summer when the cucumbers are fresh-picked from the garden. —Pamela Eaton, Monclova, Ohio
My family just loves this cool cucumber salad well dressed in sour cream and vinegar. It's a refreshing side dish that's quick to fix with everyday ingredients. —:Rose Lauritsen of Orange City, Florida
"ONE OF the staples of Ukrainian cooking is sour cream. This combination of sour cream and cucumbers makes a very tasty salad. During the summer we use cucumbers from our garden for that wonderfully fresh, crunchy taste. But store-bought cucumbers work almost as well, so we enjoy this dish year-around—it goes especially well with meat dishes."
This is a variation of a cucumber salad I once enjoyed at a salad bar. I use mayonnaise to cut the tartness of the sour cream. It has a rich flavor, too! Reduce calories by using "light" sour cream and mayonnaise.
