I don't know where this recipe came from, it's a true midwestern dish that's sure to please anyone who likes cucumbers.


  1. Medium slice cucumbers and soak in salt water (6 cups water 2Tbs. salt) this will take the burb out of the cucumbers.
  2. Mix sour cream, sugar, vinegar, salt and pepper until smooth.
  3. Add DRAINED cucumbers.
  4. Slice onion and add, stir until well mixed.
  5. Put in a sealed container and place in fridge.
  6. Stir whenever you think about it.
  7. Takes about 2 days to ferment and get done.
  8. It is normal to see air bubbles from the fermentation process, it's ok, let it do it's thing.
  9. Serve as a side salad, or the sauce can be a topper on potatoes.

Wow! I was so happy to see this old fashioned recipe posted. I followed the directions exactly and LOVED the end results! Yummy. You have to really love cucumbers, onions and sour cream but the longer this sits the better it is! I ate the whole batch over 4 days, I am such a pig but I could not help myself. I had alot of the sauce left so I put some on top of my baked potato, sooooo goooood. Thanks for sharing this, I've already started another batch.
