My DBIL was born in Norway. He will only eat Cucumber Salad that is made the Norwegian way which has with sugar added. It sort of gives it a sweet/sour flavor and is very good! I've eaten it many times at my sister's home. Posted for ZWT 2010. Cooking time is refrigeration time.

Very nice! I like with just a little more sugar, but otherwise followed directions. Yummy! More nibbles~ thanks! Made by a Looney Spoon Phoodie for ZWT#6.

Thanks for posting this - my Norsk-American family has made this for years and whenever I ask for a recipe, they say they just add things until it is "just so." I've never seen an "english" cuke in the salad - we use whatever's in the garden. My family also uses dill instead of parsley in the recipe, so I made that change, and often we use mild onions sliced long and thin.

Quite good, loved the sweet/sour, but I did add some green onions. Cucumber salad had to have nions! Thanks for posting, Carol! Made for Alphabet soup tag game.
