      YUM! Used dried dill and it turned out great. I did double it and it made too much for our party thinking everyone would take agreat big scoop.

      Awesome! Everyone loved it. I used a 2:1 ratio for the vinegar:sugar and used apple cider vinegar. Also used fresh dill and parsley (no borage). I used salt sparingly in the marinade as I found the cukes still rather salty after sweating them. I also used the sour cream (not the yogurt). This is now on my perminant menu for our Oktoberfests going forward!
