Took the advice of sshifflett1503 1312004 leaving out the water and squeezing the cukes in paper towels. I used the mini cucumbers and sliced them a bit thicker, added sweet onion as cjbyland suggested. Being on Weight Watchers, substituted Sweet and Low for the sugar. This made a 0 point treat that is addictive. Better than cucumbers in sour cream, and a lot healthier. Thanks Mr. Food staff for another keeper!

I love how crispy these are - I just added thinly sliced Vidalia onion. Great salad1

Fresh and crispy!

great recipe. I added more vinegar but the sugar takes the bit out of the vinegar. way to do mr food

why use sugar at all? i think the recipe sounds delicious without the sugar added.

leave out the water. squeeze cucumber in bowl till u have a some juice , then and the rest of ingredients. mix well. you should have a sweet sour taste.oh yes i 4got to add thinly sliced onion.

I decided to "spruce" this up and added red, green and yellow peppers and snow/ snap peas, cherry tomatoes and green onion and now call it my "vegetable salad" and everyone loves it.

Our take: 1 large English cuke or 2 regular sized - sliced, 1/3 cup each of mayo & sour cream (lite is fine, fat-free not so much), 2T. sugar, 1/2 tsp. onion salt, freshly ground black pepper & snipped fresh dill to taste. Mix & chill.

You've made a completely different recipe.

Thank you I have cucumbers growing out of my ears. They are plentiful and can't wait to prepare them. nice recipe. linda

This is really wonderful as is. I also like to add thinly sliced sweet onion.

This would be good but it has too much sugar for my taste. 2 cucumbers, thinly sliced 1/2 of a medium onion, thinly sliced 1/2 cup each water and white vinegar 2 T. sugar 1 tsp. each dill and salt 1/2 tsp. Freshly ground black pepper Mix well and chill for the flavors to blend You can add red or green bell peppers if you like them.
