This is a variation of a cucumber salad I once enjoyed at a salad bar. I use mayonnaise to cut the tartness of the sour cream. It has a rich flavor, too! Reduce calories by using "light" sour cream and mayonnaise.

"I love curry flavoring in anything so thought I'd give this a shot. I took some to work and the other cucumber lover in the office loved it as much as I did. I was in a rush so instead of sliced onions I used 2 Tbls. of instant onion soup - just as good (and a little extra curry!)"
