This was the first time I have ever eaten cucumbers that weren't raw and unadorned! very nice - something a bit different. I had to go easy on the dill because my mum was eating it and she doesn't like it, next time I'll put in all the recipe recommends.

My grandma Torok was from Fertoszentmiklos. I still make this recipe once or twice a week during the growing season...

My grandmother and grandfather were also Varga's from Hungary. It is wonderful and I will add this to my Baba's recipe's that I inherited.

This is a salad that my Hungarian father used to make but without the dill. I never thought it could be improved upon but the dill gives it a different twist. Always my favourite salad

Wonderful flavor. Not a huge fan of cukes in general but this was a big hit at a party we threw recently. Thanks for sharing.

This was soo good! I'm glad I read the recipe through early, though so I could plan the extra 3(1+ draining & 2 chilling) hours needed to make it. This will appear regularly on my table!

I grew up on this recipe. My mother's parents were from Hungary (and incidently their last name was Varga). I love this recipe. Thanks for sharing.

Gorgeous! I used Moroccan cooking salt in place of the kosher salt and sweet Moroccan paprika. We ALWAYS have some sort of salad here with a meal summer and winter and this is a keeper! We use the salads (slatas) to cut through the richness of our Moroccan cooking; much the same reason that it would be served with paprikas. Yummy, thank you Lorac! :)

I had to use up some cucumbers I had in the frig so I gave this a try. To my dismay I had no dill but it was still terrific! Thanks for the great recipe, I will definitely make this again.

This recipe was terrific! Followed all the ingredients and added the sour cream mixture a little at a time because I didn't have a lot of cukes. This was quick and easy to make and the directions were easy to follow. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe.
