One of my favorites from my Hungarian grandmother's cookbook. Cool and refreshing.

I have been making this for years, but I question the Hungarian origin.

What a delicious and cool side for summer time! The only change I made was to add some salt since I'm a salt-aholic.

I have made this recipe for so many years I don't even measure it anymore! My mom and grandmother made it for years before me. It is one of my favorite recipes! Mom used to put salt on the cucumbers and let the water out of them but I don't. I put the dressing on them just as they are. By the time they sit for awhile they release the water and the sauce is of a perfect consistency.

My mom has always made a version like this but she put salt on the cukes first and lets the water get out of them and then squeezes them to get all the water out and mixes sour cream and mayo and sliced thin onion w/them and salt/pepper, no vinegar/no sugar. They are great. Love them in the summer in w/fresh cukes.

I've been making a version of this for over 50 years: sliced cucumber and green onions, heavily salted. Mix in sour cream and let sit at room temp about an hour. Stir, and refrigerate until service. Sometimes I'll add a dash if dill. This is definitely a central European dish; learned this while my family lived in Germany decades ago.

This is an excellent base recipe that you can take in so many directions. I cut back the vinegar to 2 Tbs or it's to runny and sometimes swap a Tb of it for lemon juice and add fresh snipped dill. My husband is from Mazatlan MX and likes this dish with lime and chili powder added as he used to get cucumbers on a stick with lime and chili powder as a boy.
