Sour Cream Cucumbers Recipe

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

This was a hit at a recent dinner party. I made as directed other than I salted the cucumbers before adding the sour cream mixture. I do think it needs the addition of the salt. Thanks for sharing recipe! Field Editor

This recipe is GREAT! I did use a 6-oz. container of unflavored Greek yogurt instead of the sour cream and I just used 2 Tbsp. cider vinegar instead of 3 Tbsp. distilled white vinegar for more flavor. I used about 1/8 TO 1/4 tsp. ground black pepper to taste! I used 1 small YELLOW onion and separated onion into rings! I sampled this salad as I went along and it's delicious! I didn't add salt to the cucumbers, though! It IS a good suggestion from the other reviewers! I did peel the cucumbers and thinly slice them & prepared the dressing as recipe stated, tossed the salad with a slotted spoon and put the bowl of cucumbers in our refrigerator to chill! I also LOVE this type of cucumber salad! Thank you, Pamela Eaton for sharing this recipe! This is the first time I'd prepared this recipe-I bought the cucumbers on 4/26/14 at our local produce store so that I could make this dish! delowenstein

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.
