Creamy Cucumber Salad

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Irmgard

You can make this sour cream if you don't have any health issues, but I like it made with plain low fat or fat-free yogurt. A very refreshing side dish for something like a stew. Standing time is cooking time.

Wow--this is sooooo good!! It's cool and creamy and crunchy and dilly and tangy and delicious! I scaled the servings down to 1 (my DH isn't a fan of cucumbers), and used a green salad onion, low fat sour cream, and white vinegar--all of which worked fine. Several years ago I had a wonderful cucumber salad at a local restaurant, and have been searching for the recipe ever since--but this cucumber salad is even better! A copy of this recipe is now in my best-of-the-best cookbook, and I look forward to enjoying it again! Thanks so much for sharing it, Irmgard!!
