Welcome to the Quilting Board!
My hubby uses equal parts Vinegar and water. Then slices up Walla Walla sweet onions Or Vidalia sweet onions and cukes and lets them soak covered with the solution at least overnight. He sometimes uses Rice wine Vinegar instead of white vinegar to "Mix it up" a bit. My Dad used to make this also when I was a child and nor he or my hubby add sugar.
Lack of planning on your part does NOT nessessitate an emergency on my part.

My mom did just the vinegar and ice water - let the onions and cucumbers soak for several hours. My FIL said they were the same his mother made. The Walla Walla sweets or Vidallia onions really make it to die for. Neither my husband nor my daughters like it - so very rare when I make it. We used to have a German restaurant that would serve it. Yum!
Thanks for posting. My husb was just asking me for a recipe to cream cukes and onions. I didn't have a clue. Now he can take his choice!
I use seasoned rice vinegar on my cukes and onions. I usually use the whole bottle and slice 2-3 cukes (depending on size) and an onion. The seasoned vinegar has just enough sweetness that you don't need to add sugar and the vinegar is not strong. Now you've got me wanting my cucumbers to hurry up so I can have some. lol I've never had the creamed cucumbers but will have to give them a try.

I do without the sour cream, but have used fat-free yogurt. I also like adding some dill.
