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. -Julie Koren, Kennesaw, Georgia

"This is a delicious salad especially with summer produce. I used multi-color cherry tomatoes, Kirby cukes, and thick green onions. I used more Dijon mustard and skipped the milk as I thought the vinegar thinned out the sour cream just fine. Next time I will use some herb vinegar, and there will certainly be a next time!!!!"

"I was looking for some marinated or pickled german salads like I remember while visiting Germany. Also, many German restaurants have amazing salads. But this one was disappointing. It lacked flavor. Very plain."
