"This is a German salad that has been passed down through the generations. Good with 'Ruladen and Spaetzle' for a true German dinner."

English cucumbers, sliced very thin
green onions, finely chopped
dried dill weed
This is EXACTLY how my Grandma made cucumbers and green onions straight from the garden. She always used fresh dill weed from her garden as well. This is still one of my most favorite "salads". When I make it now, I use reduced fat sour cream and EVOO.
Wasn't impressed to plain tasting for me
My mother used to make this and it's still going in the family. Only we also add garlic powder! Please give it a try I'm sure you'll love it.
The best cucumber salad I've ever had! A lot of cuke salads are just too sweet for me because they call for sugar. This one was just perfect. I followed the recipe exactly but omitted the onions. I will make this one often.
So happy to see a cucumber salad recipe on here. I use my Oma's recipe that has been passed down through the years as well. My Oma's is the same as this one with the exception she don't use sour cream but I am going to have to give it a try for me, mom and Oma.
My Hungarian grandmothers also made cucumber salad this way - it is so good. They liked the sweet/sour version and added a sprinkle of sugar to the dressing. I can't wait for garden cucumbers!
