    BoxO'Wine's Note:

    Many hungarian families have cucumber salad to complement any of the spicey dishes popular in the cuisine. I was taught to make this as a very young girl. I am often asked to bring this dish along.

      I had two cucumbers I'd been ignoring in the fridge, and I happened to have sour cream on hand, to. This recipe caught my eye in the "3 recipes you'd like to have reviewed" thread, so I decided to give it a try. It was absolutely delicious. Very simple and refreshing. I'd imagine it would be wonderful in the summer with fresh-picked cucumbers. But as it's mid-January and in the 70's here, I was looking for something light. This was perfect. Thanks, BoxO'Wine...Great recipe! Also,anyone who lives near "The Boss" is okay in my book! lol :)

      This was a wonderful refreshing salad and will certainly be making it again. I did not put as much dill weed in but that was a personal preferance.
