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.
"This salad has been a family favorite for as long as I can remember," Betty Tobias writes from Nashua, New Hampshire. "It's prettiest when it's served in a glass bowl, with orange and cucumber slices lining the sides. Often, I'll double the dressing recipe so I have some on hand for the next time I make it."
Barbara Moravek of Jay, Florida writes, “This recipe has a wonderfully refreshing taste. In 10 minutes (or less) you can have a mouthwatering salad with only 5 ingredients.”—Barbara Moravek, Jay, Florida
These refreshing cucumber creations will make your next lunch seem special. "This is a cool dish when days get warm," says Sue Ross of Casa Grande, Arizona. Tip: "Try it with tuna or turkey salad as the filling instead.".
This recipe came from a friend who ran his own inn in Germany. It's a very cool, light salad with an exhilarating taste that's delicious anytime of the year - especially when made with fresh-from-the-garden cucumbers and tomatoes.

Whenever I pack a picnic, this salad comes along. It's great with grilled entrees or sandwiches. In summer and fall, it's among my most requested side dishes. It keeps well in the refrigerator, so you can make it ahead of time.
I extended bottled salad dressing to come up with this refreshing combination. Full of cucumber flavor, it's wonderful over dark greens and fresh vegetables, It's a recipe I turn to time and again.—Connie Thomas, Jensen, Utah
WHEN my husband had heart surgery, I had to look for recipes that were nutritious yet tasty.
With just a touch of mayonnaise, this potato salad filled the bill. The quantity is just right for the two of us. When I use the microwave to cook the potatoes, I can serve it up in no time.
