Sour Cream Cucumbers
Total TimePrep: 15 min. + chilling
Absolutely my husband's favorite!
Great cucumber salad. I prefer to use English cucumbers
I reviewed this salad earlier, right after making it and chilling it for 4 hours. It was good. I put the leftovers in the fridge and finished eating them tonight, 3 days later. I'm upping my rating to 5 stars! Wow! It was even better after 72 hours of refrigeration (and served with tomato slices).
I think this must be an Ohio dish. I have been making this for years as did my mother and grandmother before me. The recipe just as it is is great. You can make with more dressing or as is, with sugar or without. It all depends on your taste. But it is great no matter if you make changes or not. Because I have been making it for years there is one suggestion that I have. Slice the cucumbers, salt them well, let them sit in the frig for a couple of hours then drain them before combining with the remaining ingredients. Great refreshing recipe.
Was very disappointed in the ratio of cucumbers to the sour cream dressing. Had to double the dressing just to have most of the cucumbers covered. Didnt even use the 3 cucumbers.
One of my husband's favorite recipes. He requested it again today.
My husband is from Indiana and he said years ago he loved cucumbers. I made my Moms cucumbers and sour cream and I’m sure it’s why I made a big hit. We have this once a months.
Peel, slice and GENEROUSLY salt cucumbers. Place in a colander, top with paper towel and weight them for a few hours. Thoroughly rinse. They become very limp but VERY crispy.
My father was full Hungarian and we always made cucumbers but never with sour cream. We always salted the peeled, thinly sliced cukes and onion, let them sit for at least an hour, then used our hands to wring them out several times. We just added cider vinegar and black pepper and stirred well. Very sour and delicious.
This is the way my mom taught me how to make, but she always sliced the cucumbers first, place in bowl and refrigerate to get as much water out as possible
