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

"We LOVE it. I omitted the onion because we don't like raw onion. Sometimes I add a little dill weed to it. Since I am a diabetic and am eating a very low carb diet I used sweetener (Splenda) instead of sugar. It turned out great. So happy I found this recipe!"

"If you salt cucumber and onion mixture and refrigerated about an hour before mixing with sour cream , you will have a crispier version. I have never added sugar but will try next time I make. (Be sure to drain excess water from the mixture before adding sour cream)"

"Yummy. Garden fresh cukes aren't available here right now so I used the thin skinned hot house from the market. I soaked them in salt and ice water bath as suggested. Added just a pinch of dill. Big hit and not a bit leftover. Served with baby red taters and grilled lamb chops. 10 stars!"
