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

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 12, 2014

This is a very refreshing salad. The thinner you slice the cucumbers the better. This always disappears fast when I make it. Thank you for sharing!

MY REVIEW

It was ok, not too popular with my group. I had a lot leftover.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 21, 2012

To be honest, I was disappointed in this dish after I read all the positive reviews. I did increase the sugar which several reviewers suggested, but still wasn't impressed with the taste. I decided to give it a second chance tomorrow after sitting overnight.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 28, 2012

This is the best salad ever for we love and grow cucumbers. I used 3 tablespoons of cider vinegar and increased the sugar to 2 T. + 1 teaspoon sugar. We do not like dill so I substituted celery seeds and added extra onion. I also added a little red and yellow bell pepper. Soooooo, so good!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 7, 2010

You need to double the dressing recipe to get the results pictured.

I also added an extra 1 tsp of sugar because the cider vinegar flavor was too strong.

It's very important to let this salad sit. The first time I made this, it was bland an awful. I let it sit 3 hours the second time with the above modifications and it was perfect.
