Sour Cream Cucumbers Recipe

It’s been a tradition at our house to serve this dish with the other Hungarian specialties my mom learned to make from the women at church. It’s especially good during the summer when the cucumbers are fresh-picked from the garden. —Pamela Eaton, Monclova, Ohio

"I love this recipe. My dad introduced me to cucumbers and sour cream years ago, and it’s one of my favorite snacks. I love the tang from the vinegar and sweetness of sugar."

"I didn't like this at all. It's runny and no flavor. Blah!

Plain cucumber & onion soaked in vinegar & salt is much better than this. Sorry."

"Made this a couple months . I used Greek yogurt in place of the sour cream and a light champagne vinegar. We all loved it!"

"My Hungarian family also makes a version of this. We don't use vinegar, and we top with Hungarian Paprika. This is a must have at any family function."

"We love this dish. My Hungarian Granny also made this. It's great with BBQ and Greek dishes too. I salt and let the cukes drain in a colander for a while before I mix the rest in for a crisper salad."

"My grandparents came right from Germany and we used to have this same dish, cucumbers in sour cream and also the cucumbers in vinegar. I can hardly wait until warmer weather so that I can get my fresh cucumbers from the farmers market. One of my favorite veggie in the summer."

"We LOVE it. I omitted the onion because we don't like raw onion. Sometimes I add a little dill weed to it. Since I am a diabetic and am eating a very low carb diet I used sweetener (Splenda) instead of sugar. It turned out great. So happy I found this recipe!"
