German Cucumber Salad – Take No Time & So Easy To Make!

Cucumber and onion slices marinate in a sour cream and vinegar dressing for maximum flavor in this German cucumber salad recipe.

Eating this cool and crunchy cucumber salad always reminds me of Germany.  It’s commonly included as part of any Salatteller (salad plate) in German restaurants.  A Salatteller will often feature a serving of carrot salad, radish salad, lettuce greens, potato salad and this cucumber salad.  They’re the best salads ever!

While creamy cucumber salads are also popular in Germany, this oil- and vinegar-based version tends to be served more frequently in restaurants, at least where I’m from in southern Germany.

In Germany you can buy dry dill dressing mixes that come in small envelopes, often the Knorr brand.  You add oil and vinegar and add it to your cucumber salad or leafy greens.  Here’s a from-scratch version that takes just a couple of extra minutes to assemble and tastes even better.

Let’s get started!


To Make this Recipe You’Il Need the following ingredients:

Ingredients:

1/2 cup sour cream or plain yogurt
1 cucumber
1 medium to large tomato
2 slices onion (slice like you would for onion rings)
2-4 tsp lemon juice
1/2 – 3/4 tsp dill
Pinch of salt

Directions:

Peel and slice your cucumber, slice your tomato, and slice your onion. I like to slice, then quarter the onion because its easier to eat.
In a bowl, combine dill and salt.
Add sour cream or yogurt and lemon juice to taste. Mix well.
Add onion, cucumber, and tomato to the mixture and stir until the veggies are coated with the dressing.
