Made this today with my first cucumber from the garden. Instead of using sour cream, I always use Greek Yogurt in place of sour cream in recipes. It is easy to make. Line a mesh strainer with cheese cloth. Put into the strainer a container (save the container) of yogurt (I use non-fat plain) and let it drain for several hours, or overnight in fridg. squeeze out any remaining moisture by bringing up the cheese cloth around the glob in the strainer. It will be thick and creamy, just like sour cream. Store it in the container you emptied it from. I used this in this recipe and it was wonderful. I only used 1 Tbsp of sugar.

This is a classic local Volga German dish. Quadruple the ingredients and you'll be in good shape to start with. I am sure there are variations all over the USA.

I made this recipe exactly as written, although I used malt vinegar as suggested by one other reviewer. I served it with grilled salmon when I had a friend over for dinner. We both loved it. There was a good serving left which I ate the next day. Yumm. I will be making this lots for myself, especially in the summer. Great cool side dish. Thankyou B&B Adams

I have been making my version of this for years and it's always a hit at gatherings! I add cherry or grape tomatoes, and I just use Vidalia onions, and omit the sugar. I love it!

Hello B&B, I have made this salad for years and when I can't get nice scallions I use a yellow onion. We love it! It is simple yet delicous! Have also used it with a sugar substitute and it has turned out great. Thank you for posting, Diane :=)

This is a wonderful recipe when we have fresh green onions available. I've used it for years. I also like to add a teaspoon of dried dill to the mixture.

This is a great, easy recipe. I used malted vinegar and it was very tasty. I will double the recipe next time as it only made about 3 servings. It was fast, easy and a great salad for a warm day. i am interested in trying a few options..like maybe coriander instead of white pepper and maybe a little yogurt instead of all sour cream. I suggest you make it by the recipe first. I loved it.
