I did have regular cucmbers so I used pickles. I also didn't have sour cream so I used white gravy because it was similar in color. I have no idea what tarragon vinegar so I just used apple cider vinegar and added hamburger seasoning for an herb taste. Honey was a great subistitue for sugar. 10 out of 10 would make again.

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. :)
