Posted for World Tour 2006, this is a mildly tangy cucumber salad of the sort you can find at small cafes and private homes in Germany. I loved this one when I lived there. It's not fancy but it is definitely tasty.

I added some thinly sliced sweet onion and really liked the sweating technique. I eyeballed the sour cream to meet the consistency I wanted. At the end I added fresh parsley and dill. This dish is very refreshing and tasty! Highly recommend trying this recipe.
