    Dreamer in Ontario's Note:

    I grew up eating this salad and love it. It's a bit different than most North American cucumber salads I've seen as there is no sour cream in it, only a simple oil and vinegar dressing. Usually it's been made using only cucumbers but sometime cooked green and/or yellow beans and/or tomatoes are added. The quantity of oil and vinegar dressing may need to be adjusted if additional veggies are used.

      Delicious cucumber salad, which made for an excellent side dish to Peppery-Sweet Oven-Roasted Salmon that I had last night for supper. I used extra virgin olive oil with balsamic vinegar and pepper. Thanks for posting! Made for More Than Sauerkraut & Dumplings in the German Forum.

      This received mixed reviews. dh wouldn't go near it because it had green beans (too bad, I'm the cook & *I* love 'em!) but my close friend who has a German relative pegged this as typically German instantly & loved it! The rest of us liked it well enough but not an overwhelming favorite. Not sure why, because all the components are yummy. Maybe it's an odd combination for us? Ah well...made & reviewed for German Tag 4/12.
