This was an excellent recipe. We aren't big garlic fans so I used half of the garlic powder and added a little extra sour cream. Kids and adults alike loved it!

This is a very refreshing salad. The thinner you slice the cucumbers the better. This always disappears fast when I make it. Thank you for sharing!

It was ok, not too popular with my group. I had a lot leftover.

To be honest, I was disappointed in this dish after I read all the positive reviews. I did increase the sugar which several reviewers suggested, but still wasn't impressed with the taste. I decided to give it a second chance tomorrow after sitting overnight.

This is the best salad ever for we love and grow cucumbers. I used 3 tablespoons of cider vinegar and increased the sugar to 2 T. + 1 teaspoon sugar. We do not like dill so I substituted celery seeds and added extra onion. I also added a little red and yellow bell pepper. Soooooo, so good!

You need to double the dressing recipe to get the results pictured.I also added an extra 1 tsp of sugar because the cider vinegar flavor was too strong.It's very important to let this salad sit. The first time I made this, it was bland an awful. I let it sit 3 hours the second time with the above modifications and it was perfect.

Many years ago I saw this in a gourmet store for 6.99lb. I refused to pay that much so I purchased 1/4lb and worked out this same recipe. The only difference is I use a red onion thinly sliced. I had almost forgotten about this until I saw it here today. WTG great recipe!

A simple, quick, tasty side dish. I added 1 1/2 tsp of bleu cheese crumbles. The vinegar cuts the familiar taste of the cheese, but adds an extra hint of flavor. My husband had no idea I slipped it in there.

This is an excellent and delicious recipe! I added a small banana pepper for a little extra kick. On a different note, the moisture from the cucumbers makes the dressing slightly runny if you allow it to sit overnight, so it's best eaten soon after it's chilled.

I added thinly slice red bell pepper. It is yummy and with the summer harvest of cukes, it's perfecto!
