GERMAN CUCUMBER SALAD



This German Cucumber Salad is budget-friendly, easy to make, and perfect for a family dinner, party, or potluck. Cucumber salad (called Gurkensalat in German) is very popular in Germany and is often served as a side dish with meat or fish.


The traditional German cucumber salad is made with a lot of dill and you can also add parsley, tomatoes, and garlic. There are two types of dressing that are usually used for this salad. You can make it with a sour cream or yogurt based dressing or with an oil and vinegar based dressing.


The secret to making a delicious German cucumber salad is to slice the cucumbers really thin. I wasn’t able to slice them super thin for the pictures because my mandolin slicer isn’t adjustable and I don’t really mind them to be a bit thicker. But Germans usually slice the cucumbers so thin that the slices are almost translucent.
