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 REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 15, 2014

My house loves cucumbers so this was an easy homerun! We left out the onions, but loved it still the same.

Perfect in its simplicity! A tasty salad that is quick and simple to prepare. I used red wine vinegar instead of white. Loved the flavor boost from the sugar! This is a perfect accompaniment to any seafood dish.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 30, 2014

These cucumbers taste crisp and refreshing; a great side dish to any meal! I would recommend adding 1 teaspoon of salt to bring out the flavor of the cucumbers even more.

I've been making this recipe since it was originally published. We love it especially with Kirby cucumbers. I do salt the sliced cucumbers and drain them before mixing with the dressing ingredients. If I have it, I add fresh dill. We like it with lots of freshly ground pepper. Thanks Pamela!!

MY REVIEW

I just saw this recipe in the April/May 2014 issue of ToH... it is still a winner. I have made a similar recipe for many years, and now I am debating which is the better of the two. As a volunteer field editor, I can recommend this recipe. I didn't add the sugar, added some dill, and liked the creamy flavors.
