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.

I make this with 0% greek yogurt instead of sour cream and it turned out nicely. Added half tsp sugar just to take the acidic edge off, and also added chopped fresh mint and red onion. Next time I would do half yogurt half sour cream. Otherwise, pretty tasty!

This is DELICIOUS. The people giving poor reviews must be looking for something different cause this is perfection. Creamy yet a little tart from the lemon juice. Highly recommended

I use 4 medium cu[filtered]bers sliced thin, a w[filtered] medium purple sweet onion sliced in half then sliced down into medium thin slices, 1 cup of your favorite mayo, "Not Salad Dressing Mayo", 1/4 cup of sour cream, 1/4 of butter milk, 3Tbs sugar, 1/2 tsp course salt, 1/2 tsp black pepper, and 2Tbs of fresh dill weed chopped fine. Add everything except the cu[filtered]ber and onion into a large mixing bowl and wisk very well so that the sugar gets completely mixed well, the sugar sweetens the butter milk and sour cream and also bring out the flavor of the butter milk, "If the dresseing seems a little thick add a splash more of butter milk," add onion and mix then add cu[filtered]ber and mix coating all well then chill for 3 to 4 hours before serving. This salade makes a Great side when cooking steaks on the grill or broiler, i love to dip my steak in the dressing on my plat mmmmm better than any steak sauce lol.

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.
