  1. Great looking recipe! Would it do well, as eggplant, to salt the cucumber slices for a while to remove the excess moisture natural to the cucumber? (Of course, the salt would washed-off and the cucumbers dried.)

    1. You can do that if you like, of course. I don’t find it necessary, but I know some people prefer to drain the moisture away by salting.

  2. There’s nothing better than a refreshing ‘Cucumber Salad’ (side dish) on a hot summer day! The combination of cucumbers, (lite) sour cream, and fresh dill are all incredible! I’ve been making ‘Cucumber Salad’ pretty much this same way, ever since I was a young bride. My mom’s recipe was very similar to this one, so that’s how I till make it. VERY DELICIOUS!

  3. Delicious recipe and easy to prepare. I’m a big fan of cucs, and this recipe was dinner for one! Munched on several Saltines along with it. My only comment about the published recipe is: The recipe states it takes 10 minutes to prepare — yes, if you don’t consider the one hour rest time for the salted cucs. Next time, I’m going to small cube the cucs and top a split open baked potato.

  4. Replaced sour cream with plain yogurt and rocked on from there. Will use this one over and over again – thank you.

  5. I live in Florida and I can serve this anytime ,considering it’s summer here all year around. I am going to add a wee bit of sweet onion and diced garlic sprinkled with paprika for color.

  6. It was so great seeing all your vacay pics on Facebook, looks like you had a great time!

    And this salad reminds so much of grandmother’s recipe for a similar thing. I love this flavor together! Thanks for sharing and reminding me.
