A quick and easy salad recipe that is perfect for the summer. Great with BBQ food! The Tarragon wine vinegar really gives this a wonderful flavor. It should chill for at least 2 hours before serving. Recipe adapted from Scandinavian Spice Company for the Zaar World Tour II.


  1. Thinly slice unpeeled cucumbers - use can use a mandolin or slicer for nice paper thin slices. Should be about 3 cups.
  2. Whisk sour cream, parsley, vinegar, sugar, and chives in a small bowl.
  3. Fold in sliced cucumbers.
  4. Cover and chill for at least two hours.

Served this with pulled pork sammies. perfect fit. I used the miniature cucumbers and greek yogurt in place of the sour cream. I did find it needed a bit of salt. :)

Made this with regular vinegar, didn't have any tarragon or parsley, so I used a couple tsp fresh dill. Needed to use up a sweet salad onion, so I used that instead of the chives. The sauce is superb...not to thin, and just enough sweetness. I did add a little salt to taste.
