German Cucumber Salad

I haven’t grown cucumbers in a few years because my vine veggies just haven’t been doing too well – and I gave up.  Since I had such a banner year with my squash in the past few years summer – I think I just may go back to cucumbers this year. So with the warm weather approaching and my love for cucumbers  and  German cooking (my great-great grandmother was from Bavaria) – I figured I would whip up another a great compliment to burgers and hotdogs.  Cucumber Salad.

Heilmann Gurkensalat Recipe


3 -4 cucumbers
2 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp Kosher salt
6 tbsp  Apple Cider Vinger
1-2 tbsp Pepper
1/2 small red onion
1 tbsp Dill
1 8oz container of Sour Cream

Cut cucumbers into thin slices, add onion, dill and place aside. Mix salt, pepper, sugar, vinegar and sour cream in a separate container.  Mix sugar/vinegar mixture until sugar is completely dissolved.  I like to whisk mine so it gets fluffy.  Then add sugar/vinegar mixture to cucumbers.  Chill for 10/15 minutes (or longer) and serve.  PROST!

**Please note – I am NOT a chef – by any means of the word.  However – this recipe does get the Nick Frost Stamp of Approval. AND he is, by far, the most critical food critic there is**
