German Cucumber Salad with Sour Cream

READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by Charmed

This is a very light, tasty salad, and not sweet like many cucumber salads. It's very refreshing with a tangy bite from the green onions. I used dried herbs, of course using less, and it was still very tasty. I got the recipe many years ago from a recipe board online, but do not remember the source. However, it was attributed to a man who made this for his guests at an inn he ran in Germany. I included slicing the vegetables in the approximate time.
