Cucumbers In Vinegar and/or Sour Cream

eartha | Jun 28, 2008 08:04 AM

I'm looking for a recipe from my youth, made by a Polish lady who didn't speak English. She made two varieties, one with vinegar and onions, the other with sour cream and onions.

I've tried to replicate her version but haven't been successful. Her vinegar version was tangy, slightly sweet/sour and her sour cream version was sour/tangy/peppery. The cucumbers remained firm and crispy in both versions. I just can't seem to find the balance.

Any ideas?
