This salad is one my father would make every Christmas as part of the family dinner. (Dad taught Mom to cook!) It is a favorite with most of our family. Hope your family enjoys it as well.

How to Make Dad's Salad (German Cucumber Salad)


  1. Thin slice cucumbers and radishes in food processor if you have one. Easy way for me.
  2. Slice the green onions
  3. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Plastic or glass is best. Add enough vinegar to your taste.
  4. Cover and refrigerate for THREE DAYS stirring each day.
    This gives all the flavors a chance to blend.
  5. Serve in small bowls. Delicious!
