We are always looking for good cucumber salads and this was was great. I used parsley and chives out of my herb garden and it was great. Next time I will add some onions, I missed them with my cucumbers. Made for ZWT6

Awesome! I usually always make cucumber salads with dill, but I loved this version with the fresh parsley, chives and tarragon vinegar. The longer it chills, the better it gets. Thanx for sharing!

I made a half recipe of these cukes (as written) for 2 of us. While we liked them, we did find them a bit bland. Salt & pepper + the chill time improved them further, but I think maybe more sugar to better balance the tartness of the sour cream & vinegar may be the answer - for us at least. That is what it often comes down to - matters of pers pref. I may well revisit this recipe after ZWT is over to see if I am right. Thx for sharing this recipe w/us.
