My German cucumber salad, aka Gurkensalad, is so delightfully refreshing, especially in the summer. It's a perfect side dish for almost any meal. This version (unlike my Mutti's) has no sour cream or yogurt, so it's perfect for a buffet table or to take along for picnics.

Oma's German Cucumber Salad ❤️

Ingredients:

  • 2 cucumbers, peeled and thinly sliced 
  • 4 Tbsp white vinegar
  • 4 Tbsp water
  • 1 - 2 Tbsp granulated sugar
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 Tbsp fresh dill or ½ tsp dried dill
Instructions:
  • Put thinly sliced cucumbers into serving bowl.
  • In separate bowl, mix together vinegar, water, sugar, and salt. Pour over cucumbers.
  • Sprinkle with dill and stir. Season with additional salt and/or sugar if needed.
  • Serves 4.
Hints:
  • Try using different types of vinegar ... white wine vinegar, cider vinegar ... or try your favorite.
  • If you have very tender English cucumbers, they do not have to be peeled.
  • Add some thinly sliced onions.
  • If your cucumber has a large center seeds, you can always remove them. Do this by cutting your cucumber lenthwise and then scrape a spoon down the center to remove the seeds

Cucumber Salad with Cream

Oma says,

This German cucumber salad, without the cream, is one that will keep well in the fridge over night. In fact, it's similar to being pickled and the flavors get a chance to mingle.
