German Cucumber Salad - VeryVera

German Cucumber Salad


  • 2 English cucumbers or 4 medium cucumbers
  • 1/2 c sour cream
  • 1 tbsp. white vinegar
  • 1 tsp. granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp. fresh dill
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • Black pepper, to taste


  1. Peel the cucumbers if desired and thinly slice them with a mandoline slicer. The thinner the better! Put the sliced cucumber in a large salad bowl and salt down and let sit for 4 hours or overnight.
  2. In a medium bowl whisk together the sour cream, vinegar, sugar, and dill. Add salt and pepper to taste. Refrigerate until time to finish the salad.
  3. Rinse the salted cucumbers and squeeze out excess liquid.
  4. Pour the dressing over the cucumber slices and toss until combined. Cover and let chill in the fridge for at least 4 hours or overnight.
  5. Serve with a slotted spoon.
