Swedish Cucumber Salad - Pressgurka

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by French Tart

This cucumber salad goes well with just any kind of meal. In Sweden, strong white distilled vinegar is usually used (12%), which gives the cucumber salad the correct sweet-and-sour flavour and a wonderful fresh and refreshing taste.

Making with the caraway seeds is what makes this recipe different and Swedish! Loved the mixture of ingredients and will make again. My DH loved this and requested it again soon! If he likes it, then it's a go! Thanks for this one FT!
