Recipe by Merlot
This is wonderful! It is important to let the sliced cucumbers sit for 1/2 hour and then squeeze out the water.

Very good side dish, salad! And I am so glad you stressed the importance of letting the cucumbers drain well! This made the sour cream really cling to the cucumbers. The taste is super good. This is a keeper. Thanks Merlot!
