“This recipe is a quick, no-cook way to use your freshly grown or store bought cucumbers during the summer. As a child, my mother had a vegetable garden and this was a staple recipe in my house when the cucumbers were in season. Delicious, refreshing, and easy!”

Hubs rates this four stars because he missed the typical vinegar usually included in cucumbers with dill and sour cream. I give it five stars because I welcomed no vinegar in this salad!

Great cucumber salad! I love fresh dill and fresh chives. I used white wine vinegar instead of lemon juice, 2 cucumbers, and added salt and cracked black pepper.



As written, I had a few issues with this recipe. First, I found there was way too much dressing for only one cuke. Also, it was pretty bland. I added 2 more cukes, 1 T vinegar, and 1/2 t salt, and it was just about perfect. Definitely let it chill in the fridge for awhile before eating so all the flavors can blend.
