German cucumber salad recipe, aka Gurkensalad, is one of our favorite summer salad recipes. In fact, it's one that I just can't alter. I've tried, BUT, nothing beats this original recipe that I grew up with. It seems, that whenever I make it, I never make enough. I start out, always adding an extra cucumber to make sure there's enough.
Somehow, it always disappears quickly. My plan is always to make more the next time, after all, it's a quick German recipe ... so easy to make.
Above is my cucumber salad with a simple vinegar/sugar dressing that makes a very refreshing salad that's perfect for buffets and picnics. It's also a great side that fits to most meals. Here's the recipe.
Here's Karen's recipe (from Lethbridge, AB Canada) that she sent into our 2012 Quick Christmas Recipe Contest. It's a great traditional cucumber salad from her Oma.
Pop right over to my private Facebook group, the Kaffeeklatschers. You'll find thousands of German foodies, all eager to help and to talk about all things German, especially these yummy foods.
I pop in all the time as well, to chat and to answer questions.
Meet with us around Oma's table, pull up a chair, grab a coffee and a piece of Apfelstrudel, and enjoy the visit.
