I do mine very similar just a different vinegar, no sugar and a 50/50 mix of Miracle Whip/Sour Cream. I love cucumbers made like this myself.

I sometimes use balsamic, red wine, white wine or Sherry vinegars. I kind of change it up from time to time just to add a different twist. I don't always use Miracle Whip especially when I use the Sherry or Balsamic vinegars. I also have been known to add shallots or thin slices of red onions as well. I use the Miracle Whip when I don't want sugar which really depends on the vinegar as Sherry and Balsamic are pretty sweet.

I made this recipe last week but forgot to post my pic. The taste of this is great. I love the sour cream and cucumber combo. My only suggestion would be to start with 1/2 the amount of sour cream and add according to the amount of cucumbers that you have. My cuc's were kind of on the small side ( I see now where the recipe says "large cucumbers"), so I ended with more sauce than I needed. Anyway, very good .

Exact recipe that my Polish relatives make, except we mix fresh dill with it instead of parsley.

I strongly recommend trying it with dill!

Oh man, the old saliva is flowing right now!

I add thinly sliced onions to mine. I've never added vinegar or sugar. I'm going to have to try it and see as I just picked four cukes from the garden.......sounds interesting.

Yep. Some thin onion slices are added by me as well. Do try the vinegar and sugar. Those have always been in DW's recipe and I wouldn't have it any other way.

I love cucumbers! (There's a surprise, right?) I just got a mandolin and I've been making cucumber salads daily since then. My fave is very thinly sliced cucumbers covered in rice wine vinegar and seasoned with cracked pepper.
