When I mixed this up, I was concerned because it is quite ---- no, I mean QUITE ---- tart! I thought perhaps that I'd read the recipe wrong (I didn't) or that Sue had meant more than 1 teaspoon of sugar (perhaps a Tablespoon?) I was wrong on both counts. While it might overpower some of the more mild-tasting greens, my usual romaine lettuce and onion salad benefitted quite nicely from this dressing. I imagine a spinach salad would be good as well. I also tried it with lime juice, which was very good (actually, I made that first, since I'd started the recipe before realizing I was out of lemons) I used up the last bit of the one with lime today, mixing it with some lightly steamed (still crispy) cabbage that was leftover from dinner last night. It was excellent. I was curious to see if it would work on fruit salad, so yesterday I tried some on a mixture of canned pineapple and sour cherries. That was also excellent. Thank you, Sue, for this versatile dressing!

Reminds me of the sour cream dressing at Coco's.

Just made up a batch of this and then whipped up an amazing salad with this as my dressing. Awesome. I follow a low carb/high healthy fat eating style so I use a full fat, pasture raised sour cream and then followed the rest of the recipe completely. I will be using this in my salad dressing rotation often.

I added garlic to this one..my grandmother used to make this. Then I peeled up some cucumbers very thinly sliced let them sit in a little salt and squeezed out the liquid. I added the dressing and wow..I love cukes like this! Thanks for sharing!

I found it bland until I added some crushed garlic and Dill. Then it was amazing. Thanks for the base.

Quick and easy, esp. with a cuisinart for mixing. However, I think it needed a little something extra and I threw a generous handful of parsley in and it was great.

This sauce was great on sliced cucumbers and cherry tomatoes! I halved the salt and it was perfect!
