Gurkensalat – cucumber salad

Time: 40 min


  • 2 seedless cucumbers
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 3 tbsp white vinegar
  • 3 tbsp fresh dill
  • 1 tsp fresh parsley
  • ½ red onion (thinly sliced) (optional)


  1. Slice cucumbers very thinly – this is easier done with mandoline or the slicer opening on a box grater.
  2. Salt the cucumbers and place them on a colander to drain for 20 minutes. Rinse thoroughly and pat dry.
  3. In a large bowl, combine sugar, vinegar, dill and parsley.
  4. Gently fold in cucumber and sliced onion, if desired.
  5. Let rest 15 minutes, then serve.
