Hi, I have used this recipe for a year now and my husband praises it every time....I love it, however his groin hernia, which is painful at times, I have to keep him off dairy, so what can I use in place of the sour cream? Thank you Gloria M. PS, Why is your rating in the minus? Dietitian comment: You can use mayonnaise or a non-dairy sour cream replacement. Glad your hubby likes this one so much!

I am an avid lover of Kraft Creamy Cucumber dressing! Since it is high fat & sodium, could I toss this recipe into the blender & use it for my dressing on other salads? Dietitian comment: You may need to make it thinner by adding some water, but I think it might work as a dressing. Plan to use it over 2-3 days.

Love it! Refreshing side dish for a hot summer day. I added 1 tablespoonful of chopped red onion, and to avoid a trip to the store I used apple cider vinegar and dill weed from my spice rack and it still came out great. Next time I make it,(soon!) I will probably cut the sugar back to 1 teaspoonful.

I made this but didn't add the sour cream, I don't like sour cream & I used sweetner & added extra vinegar & it still is too sweet so, what can I do? I'm going to add extra cucumbers & more vinegar today, does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks. Dietitian comment: Try omitting the sweetener and see how it tastes. Be sure the vinegar you use is not seasoned. Some seasoned vinegar,s like seasoned rice vinegar, contain sugar.

This was fantastic. I loved it. My wife added a little more dill and used lemon. I put it on top of my lettuce.

I make this for my father-in-law using the lemon juice, light sour cream, and sugar substitute. It's quick, easy, and he loves it!
