I added some thinly sliced sweet onion and really liked the sweating technique. I eyeballed the sour cream to meet the consistency I wanted. At the end I added fresh parsley and dill. This dish is very refreshing and tasty! Highly recommend trying this recipe.

A very refreshing salad. I did not have sour cream so I used non-fat plain yogurt. This will be a regular for me. I bet some dill weed would be good in it!

A very good salad. Refresing and low cal! I used low fat Greek yogurt because we don't have sour cream here. I remove the skin of the cucumber though, next I leave it on. I also used more parsley! Thanks Janet for posting it!

Very good, nice and fresh. I did add a bit of dill to mine. Went nice with our BBQ porkchops. Thank you for the refreshing recipe.

We loved this with a few changes. I used Splenda instead of sugar as that is all I buy. I used 1/2 teaspoon of salt and only 1/2 cup of sour cream. I also forgot to add the parsley. I also didn't drain the mixture after marinating and we really enjoyed this.

Was good but next time I'd use less sour cream.

Reminded me of our time in Germany. I did add some dill weed (dried) as well for a little more oomph but a wonderful & refreshing salad nonetheless. Thank you for sharing.

Made this exactly as directed. This recipe was very good, but the flavor was pretty mild. Next time I make it, I will add dill weed. Adding the dill will definity take it up a star to five.
