I love this salad but I found if you salt the cucumbers lightly and let them set about 30 minutes then take a paper towel and squeeze them a little bit the cucumbers don't have as much juice which makes the sauce thinner. It really does work, try it.

I added my favorite new ingredient - ground white pepper. Also removed the pulpy seed areas of the tomato. Also used a light sour cream as it doesn't hurt to reduce calories.

Woke up this morning with a craving for something I'd never had; creamy tomato-cucumber salad. This certainly hit the spot.
I was a little doubtful when seeing the ingredients for the dressing (mainly the sugar and vinegar) but it worked quite nicely. To lower calories a bit, I used 1/2 cup yogurt, and only a 1/4 cup sour cream to total the 3/4 needed for a half recipe. The garlic powder I had also contained parsley, but it tasted really nice with the yogurt sauce. The one thing I may change for next time is to leave the dill out. It seemed a bit unnecessary, and I don't really care for the flavour of dill anyway...but I did leave out the onions, so that may have something to do with it.
Thanks for the recipe, Kittencal!

I just loved this, it is so fresh and I used cherry tomatoes from my garden, and red wine vinegar, absolutely delicious! I think this salad gets even better as it chills!! I wouldn't change a thing! Thanks Kitt, great salad!

This is similar to a salad I make, but I had not used vinegar and sugar. I have to say that I was a bit dubious when tasting it after adding the sugar, but it worked together quite nicely. However, I thought this was too much sour cream. Of course, cucumbers and tomatoes vary in size, but for my one cuke, tomato and 1/2 onion I used probably 1/3 cup sour cream, 1/2 tbl vinegar and a teaspoon or so of sugar. I used fresh thyme instead of dried dill. I like this variation on the salad I usually make.

It was very tasty. I, too, may have used too many tomatoes, as the sauce was a bit thin. I drained it a bit, and then it was fine.

This does make a nice change from the usual vinegar coated tomato & cucumber salad. I did find though that I may have used too many tomatoes as the dressing thinned out quite a bit on standing. I took this to a bar-b-que and however those that tried it, did like it. Thanks for a keeper :)

This is such a light, refreshing, and creamy salad. Very easy to make. I used cider vinegar and made it as written. I can't wait for summer to try it with really sweet and juicy tomatoes, but even now it was delightful. This will be my new favorite alternative to a green salad! Thank you Kitten for another keeper!
