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 mom always made this! It was one of my favorite summer meals. We would eat it with a slice of fried ham and mashed potatoes. Yum!"

"It's ok, but missing something. Maybe salt or seasoned salt? Others mentioned dill, maybe that would work. I'll try again but will experiment with adding additional seasoning. Very refreshing on a hot day!"

"My Mom, a great cook, who grew up on a farm use to make this and her family was Scottish. Don't know where she got the recipe - maybe in Europe during WWII when she was a Captain in the CWAC. Interestingly, my late husband's family use to make this too and they were Hungarian immigrants. I like it just the way it is but I always make sure to add lots of freshly ground pepper. For those who call this bland, I think this is a great balance when many of the other meal items are spicy or have pronounced flavours. Given all the cooking I've done and the collection of cookbooks I have to refer to, as is, this is a very traditional Hungarian (European) recipe. Doesn't mean you can't tweak it or use it as a base."
