This German Cucumber Dill Salad was a favorite side dish in my house growing up. This recipe has been past down from my grandmother who was from Germany to me and now I can continue by giving it to my granddaughters. (I just hope they like it.) Serves 6 Total Time: 35 minutes
2 cucumbers, sliced
1 tablespoon kosher salt
1/2 red onion, sliced
1 clove garlic, minced
3/4 cup sour cream
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
2 teaspoons fresh dill
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon black pepper
Line a baking sheet with a tea towel.
Thinly slice the cucumbers and lay on the prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle with the salt.
Let sit for 30 minutes at room temperature to allow the cucumbers to release their water.
Pat cucumbers dry and add to a large mixing bowl with the red onion and garlic.
Whisk together the sour cream, vinegar, dill, sugar and pepper in a small bowl.
Pour the dressing mixture over the cucumbers and toss to coat.
Serve immediately. Yum Yum!
