    Irmgard's Note:

    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!!

      Cool and creamy. I used fat free sour cream instead of ff yogurt. I liked that the cucumbers stayed crisp ad the dressing wasn't too liquidy. Dill is always a good parter for cukes......yum! Thanx for sharing.

      I am always looking for ways to incorporate plain yogurt into our diets! I had some fresh dill on hand (rarity!) so I made this to go with our broccoli ham frittata. This was tangy and very refreshing. It was the right amount of creaminess, without being heavy (who needs extra calories in a cucumber dish). I really liked that it didn't have sour cream or mayonnaise in it, too. This was the first time I'd made a creamy cucumber dish for the kids but they seemed to enjoy it. Thanks Irmgard, for posting.
