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
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!
