    Made it today and it was wonderful! I did, however, substitute plain yogart for the sour cream.

    I didn't like this recipe at all, mostly because I don't like cucumbers (although I wasn't a big fan of the dressing either). My husband liked it as did most of the people I shared it with, though. The dressing was very runny and watery even though I followed the directions carefully with the salting, standing and drying. The dressing didn't stay on the cucumbers at all as the picture indicated it would.
