Gurkensalat (Cucumber Salad)

Gurkensalat (Cucumber Salad) created by teresas

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.

    We loved this with a few changes. I used Splenda instead of sugar as that is all I buy. I used 1/2 teaspoon of salt and only 1/2 cup of sour cream. I also forgot to add the parsley. I also didn't drain the mixture after marinating and we really enjoyed this.

    Was good but next time I'd use less sour cream.
