German Cucumber Salad Recipe

Serves 2

Gurkensalat is a summer favorite throughout Europe. This simple German cucumber salad recipe can be ready in minutes and is a great alternative to a boring lettuce salad. One of the simplest and tastiest cucumber recipes I have found, it makes a great last minute addition to a barbecue or sit-down meal.

Whether you are using a store-bought cucumber or one straight from your garden, be sure to test the end slices for taste. Eliminate any part of the cucumber that is too bitter before starting your cucumber salad recipe.

For a punch of crunch and color, slice up some yellow and red peppers as garnish.

1 large Cucumber- peeled and sliced
1 small White Onion - thinly sliced
1 Clove of Garlic -  minced
3 Tbsp of Vegetable Oil
3 Tbsp of White Wine Vinegar
Pinch of sugar
Salt to taste
1 Tbsp of minced Dill
Black Pepper
Sweet Paprika

Mix all ingredient in large bowl, cover and cool for 4 hours in refrigerator.
