Sour Cucumbers

Marsha Gardner


My mom loved sour cream and she put it on everything. She made these cucumbers and then served them over hot, boiled red potatoes. Luscious. I like them as a side with lots of summer dishes. A great way to use cucumbers when they seem to be multiplying by the hour in your garden.
