East European Cucumber Salad

Recipe by Bellinda

This is the perfect side dish for grilled meat. My family eats it with grilled spicy meatballs. You can adjust the ingredients to make it as creamy or as sweet as you want.

This is a good and refreshing recipe. I left out the oil. It is not needed. I used light sour cream. I also used dried dill, about 1 teaspoon. I used two packets of Splenda instead of sugar. I will make this again for sure. Thank you for posting, Bellinda.
