I have loved this salad since I was a little Gram always made this version, or a vinegar based...I always preferred this one. You can adjust the dressing to your own taste...Many times I don't measure...I just keep tasting till I get the right balance of tartness to sweetness. Enjoy! My photos

How To Make german cucumber salad

  • 1
    Place cucumbers and onion in a colander and sprinkle with salt. Mix up. Let set for about 30 minutes. ( I don't always do this if in a hurry, but they are better if you don't skip this part.) If you skip the salt soak...add some salt to the dressing or salt to taste as served. Squeeze out any excess moisture and place in a bowl.

    Pour over the cucumbers and toss to evenly coat. Best if refrigerate overnight. I sometimes sprinkle with paprika before serving. Enjoy!
