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 mother made this recipe for me as a little girl and now I have made this for my family for over 35 years. I also add a tablespoon of mayonnaise and we serve this over baby red potatoes. Try it!"

"My German grandmother's recipe includes 1C. sour cream, 1 t. sugar, 1 T. vinegar, 1 clove shaved garlic, 1/4 c. salad oil, S & P and at least 1 T. fresh dill.; whisked & tossed with cukes. Consumed by all every time, even those who are not cucumber crazy."

"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!"
