Mom Rose's Cucumber Salad

Cucumber Salad from Mom Rose's Recipe

Ingredients:


  • 2 Cucumbers ( will make enough for approximately 2-4 people )
  • 1 medium Onion
  • 1 small green Pepper
  • salt
  • Paprika ( sweet) approximately 1 Tbsp
  • Apple Cider Vinegar to taste
  • whipping cream, enough to make the sauce nice and creamy

This is how you do it:

  1. Peel, then slice the cucumbers ( I use a mandolin ) as thin as possible

  2. Do the same with the onion and green pepper

  3. Salt these ingredients ( I use Kosher salt ) mix well, then let stand for approximately 3-4 hours covered with plastic wrap.

  4. After 3-4 hours take a handful of the cucumbers and squeeze the liquid out, then place into a larger bowl, repeat until all the cucumbers etc. are squeezed.

  5. Using the Apple cider vinegar, start with about 3-4 Tbsp, taste to your liking add more if desired.

  6. Add the Paprika, mix with vinegar and cucumbers.

  7. Add about 1/4 cup of whipping cream, again check the taste to your liking.

Neither Irma or her Mom ever measured, so the above are only a starting point.

Sounds good!

Michael, this recipe sounds interesting. I love that Rose added a green pepper and onion to this. Never thought of doing that. For me, cucumber salad has always been ... just cucumbers.

Will need to try this. I'm thinking that by adding the paprika, the final dressing will have a faint pink color. Sounds pretty!

Thanks for sharing this with us, Michael.!

Blessings,
Oma Gerhild
