I love this cucumber salad. I do this with just a little different version. I use the mayo and sour cream, a little sugar, a lid of white vinegar, a little milk,& salt & pepper for the dressin. I also add cherry tomatoes, red onion slices, and brocolli and cauliflower florets. This is always a big hit with company.

I was all excited about the cool cucumber salad until I read the directions and it said to add the sour cream and dill? This was not listed in the ingredients. I am disappointed! I have been a Paula fan since her days of the old Ramada Inn Restaurant. I am happy for her success but I miss the old down home Paula.
