Pressed Cucumber Salad (Pressgurka)

Pressed Cucumber Salad (Pressgurka) created by HokiesMom

Posting for ZWT6 for the Scandinavia region. This was found online for Swedish recipes. Sounds like a great refreshing salad to add to any dinner. Update: 7/21/2011, I made this to go along with dinner the other night. I added some slices of tomato and onion. Due to the fact that I like things tart, I decreased the sugar and a little on the salt, but did also add some garlic salt. I feel this is good recipe for those who like it not so tart, especially kids, but feel free to add other veggies and spices!!

    While both DH and I happily ate every bite we were split with DH liking it as is and myself thinking I like you suggestions in the description. I did leave out the parsley as I was out. We will be enjoying this tasty side again. Thanks for the post.

    Light, quick to throw together, and really tasty--who could ask for more! This was a hit with everyone at our house, even the toddlers. I love that it tasted great just after mixing everything, as many similar recipes call for hours of marinating time. Thanks for posting! Made for ZWT 9, Gourmet Goddesses.
