Personal Notes:
When I made this I discovered if you let this set overnight it gets very watery. The second time I made it I made the sourcream mixture and let that sit overnight and salted the cucumbers the next day. The cucumbers stayed crisp and the sourcream mixture was not watery. You can do either one you desire.
