Just the way 'we' make it!!!! This recipe comes from the old country. It's one of my favorite ways to eat cukes.We ate Paprikas & goulash every Sat. nite. That's why I have tons of recipes here. This salad was made often in our home. I never grew tired of it. My kids love this as well. Thnx for sharing a time honored recipe with all of us..glitter

I thought the garlic listed was just a bit too strong for me. If I change this to 1 clove garlic it is certainly 5 star and certainly a keeper!! Absolutely delicious. It really is a must to leave it sit in the fridge for the flavours to meld because the next day, even with though still garlicky, it was very good. Perfect to make for a day ahead for a party. Thanks for this Anthony.

Crunchy, creamy, and delicious! I now know what to do with the cucumber bounty from my garden! This is a recipe I will be making again and again. Many thanks to Lorac for posting this outstanding recipe. Linda in Missouri

This is the first cucumber salad that my husband liked. The cucumbers were crunchy and the sauce was creamy. All the other recipes I have tried ended up with soft cucumbers and a runny dressing. Weighting and draining the cucumbers makes a big difference. I used hot hungarian paprika and it was perfect!

This was wonderful! Even better than I've had at local restaurants.
