This is a good salad, but to prevent it from getting runny I always let the thin sliced cucumbers marinate in the vinegar (2 tbsp.) along with the salt and red onion for about an hour then drain it. I add the rest of the ingredients and let it chill for another hour.


This was a delicious recipe! I used my food processer to slice everything, I used 1/2 mayo, 1/2 sour cream and added fresh dill. My husband and son had seconds, which says it all!

This was really good. I usually don't like cucumber salads, but I loved this one. I added about 1/4 tsp. of sugar to the dressing and I didn't put the tomatoes in until I served it. This prevented the dressing from getting too runny. I also made it without the tomato and it was just as delicious!
