Cucumber Salad with Sour Cream and Dill Dressing

We've given this creamy cucumber salad recipe a healthy update. But it's still so good, you won't even notice! Reduced-fat sour cream (in place of full-fat) lowers the calorie count without losing taste.

    used plain yogurt instead of sour cream, dried dill, added thin sliced red onions. added fresh basil on top to use it up. salted the cucumber slices and let sit in the colander for about 30 min as someone else suggested. then i rinsed and put the slices through the salad spinner to make sure they were as dry as possible. this was delicious, and i have never been a huge cucumber fan. this will be my go to recipe for cucumbers as I am getting them from my CSA share.

    It was delicious! I used two different types of cucumbers which added some variety. It does not keep well however, so make sure to eat it all in one sitting!

    Made this tonight and my family loved it. Only had dried dill and added some sliced red onion. Did sweat some of the water out of the cucumber as Lizscope2 suggested. I will try it with fresh dill next time but think this is a winner!

    My mother used to make this! To combat the 'watery' problem she put the thinly sliced cukes in a colander and salted them liberally to sweat the water out of them. After 30 mins or so, she would rinse them thoroughly with fresh water and pat them dry before adding the sour cream and other ingredients.

    I tried this recipe but the cucumbers make too much water and it becomes too watery. I think it would be best to drain the cucumbers first.

    Add some thinly sliced sweet onion to the cucumbers! An excellent addition!
