The German Cucumber Salad with dill is a great side dish for many dishes and occasions. Of course it goes well with fish dishes but is also great for the BBQ. It is super easy to make and healthy. If you make enough of the dressing keep it in an empty jar for your next salad! This dressing contains only FOUR ingredients! Happy Cooking!

  1. Just FYI — I was always told to salt the thinly sliced cucumber (and onion) – for at least an hour — to leech out much of the moisture. Then, you wring out the moisture & proceed with the sour cream/vinegar dressing. That’s the recipe from my grandmother who made it for her family from about 1925 – 1965. I think her style of cooking may have been “low” German/Pennsylvania Dutch. Thanks for posting so many great recipes! I’m trying to convert my Grandmother’s recipes to vegan…. If you have any good hints, let me know!
