Reviews forCreamy Dilled Cucumber Salad
"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."
"Have made this multiple times. I always use 3-4 garden cucumbers. Also I prefer to peeled cucumbers for the salad. Leftovers are best if you do the salt and blotting process, although still edible the next day if you don't. This is one of the family favorites, during the summer."
"Have made this for years and grew up eating it. The only difference is I use red wine vinegar instead of white. SOOOOOOO good!"
"I made this for labor day and did not have much leftovers. I used everything from the garden which was nice. I used 6 small cucumbers instead of the english cucumbers. I also used half fat free sour cream and half light. I feel like next time I might decrease the amount of sour cream and try greek plain fat free yogurt."
"Surprisingly, my kids who love tzatziki didn't care for this, but that's very much what it tastes like! It was a little fussy to blot all those cucumber slices, but otherwise simple to make. My son suggested it might be better with crumbled feta added."
"I loved it, cool and refreshing. My mom used to do make hers simular to this one, took me back many years."
"Love this summer time treat!"
"I always laugh when I read these reviews. So many substitutions that it isn't even the same recipe anymore, but someone gives it 5 stars! I will definitely make this just as written before I write a real review."
