Reviews for Sour Cream Cucumbers
"My grandmother was from Austria and I can remember her putting garlic powder and paprika in it and I do it that way too."
"My Hungarian family also makes a version of this. We don't use vinegar, and we top with Hungarian Paprika. This is a must have at any family function."
"We love this dish. My Hungarian Granny also made this. It's great with BBQ and Greek dishes too. I salt and let the cukes drain in a colander for a while before I mix the rest in for a crisper salad."
"I make this but I also add oregano."
"My grandparents came right from Germany and we used to have this same dish, cucumbers in sour cream and also the cucumbers in vinegar. I can hardly wait until warmer weather so that I can get my fresh cucumbers from the farmers market. One of my favorite veggie in the summer."
"Was excellent! Have one family member that does not usually like new dishes but blown out of his chair on this one."
"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!"
"my grandmother used buttermilk instead of sour cream and just salt and pepper. i dont think she added sugar or vinegar. when she used sugar and vinegar, she didnt use the buttermilk. made two completely dishes that way. both were good."
"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)"
"These were really good, nice change from using mayo."
