Helpful hints

  • This is a wonderful addition to any meal, but especially beef and pork dishes.
  • Instead of using 2 common cucumbers, 1 large “English hothouse” seedless cucumber can be substituted.
  • Omit onion if desired—the cucumbers are just as tasty without it.

Cucumbers with Sour Cream
CharlieAnn says:

Is alright to replace the sour cream with Tofutti Sour Cream? Dietitian comment: It's not recommended because the sodium content is much higher.

I enjoy a very similar dish using miracle whip and apple cider vinegar. The onion sounds like a great idea.

YUM! Been making this all my life and never knew it was good for me. Just loved it with almost anything. I sometimes do cukes & onions in a vinegar & water drench with garlic powder & fresh cracked black pepper. After it's sat in the fridge for a few hours or, better yet, over night, it's a lovely addition to a meal too.
