    I liked this recipe because it did not contain sugar. However, I made this and forgot to drain the yogurt. This made entirely too much dressing because of that. Flavor is good but there is way too much dressing for the amount of cucumbers. Must remember to drain the yogurt.

    This was okay but we weren't crazy about it. I suspect there are better cucumber/sour cream salad recipes out there.

    I made 1/4 recipe and it was plenty for 4 people, as it's not the kind of salad people would eat in large portions. I used 2% Greek yogurt and only drained the yogurt and vegetables for about 5 hours, but it seemed to work OK. It was pretty good, but the dressing is rich and there is a lot of it. Nevertheless, the flavor is refreshing. But I'm not sure I'd make it again.
