I was married for a time (a looong time ago) to a Hungarian-I remember more about his mum's cooking than I do about him. This reminded me of her-delicious thank you!

Very good. I usually just use oil and vinegar - this was a nice change. I used rice vinegar and added a few fresh chives.

Such a great way to use summer cukes! I added a teaspoon of dried dill. The cucumber and sourcream just pair beautifully together! This is a very refreshing summer salad. Perfect with grilled Salmon. Thanks
