This is very good and I'll be making it a lot to compliment grilled foods.

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.

Awesome recipe, almost identical to what my family prepares. We use apple cider vinegar and more garlic. Try with roasted garlic if raw is to sharp or bitter for your taste. Great share, thanks!

I have made this salad for years, it is a staple on my summertime dinner table. Its super quick & easy & I always have everything on hand. I partially peel my cucumbers lengthwise leaving green stripes of skin, I think it makes it look pretty. I use a mandolin to slice very thin. Perfect for a potluck or a BBQ...especially when you have something else that may be spicy or piping hot on the plate. It is refreshing & the addition of the garlic is key...it's what is missing in all the other cuke salad recipes. I use dried dill if I don't have fresh, just sprinkling it on top before it rests in the fridge. Mix together just before serving.
