This recipe for Hungarian Cucumber Salad is one I grew up with as a child. We all love sour cream… my Dad and I could eat it with a spoon, we like it so much… so this salad was made in heaven for us… cucumbers, onions, sour cream and of course… paprika… what would a Hungarian cucumber salad be without paprika….
This is so....hmmmmm …. so good!
I make this all summer long when I can get cucumbers at local farm stands and farmers markets…. there is nothing like fresh produce used to make wonderful meals.
Recipe: Hungarian Cucumber Salad
All you need:
3 cucumbers, peeled and thinly sliced
1 medium to large onion, thinly sliced (sweet onion preferred)
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup sour cream
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice to taste
1 teaspoon Hungarian sweet paprika
Hungarian hot paprika to taste
All you need to do:
Place the sliced cucumber in a large bowl and sprinkle with salt.
Allow the cucumbers to rest for about 2 hours.
Water may accumulate at the bottom of the bowl… drain it.
Add the onion. Mix completely.
In a small bowl, combine remaining ingredients and mix well.
Pour the sour cream dressing over the cucumbers and mix well.
Refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving.
Note: If you have leftovers …. The cucumbers will continue to draw water which will separate from the sour cream… just pour off the little bit of water that accumulates and stir the salad again.
