Cucumber Salad with Sour Cream (Tejfeles uborkasalata)

This is another June Meyer specialty. I think when you are serving a bacon/bacon fat sandwich, it is good to have something light and crunchy to go with it. Cucumbers are always a great summer staple. I got a huge box of them for $2 at the farm stand, so we quadrupled this recipe and ate it for days.


4 cucumbers
1 small clove of garlic
1 teaspoon suger
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup of good vinegar (not red)
3/4 cup of real sour cream

Peel cucumbers.

Put in mixing bowl.

Peel and chop clove of garlic.

Add Salt and sugar slices.

Mix in sour cream.

Add vinegar and toss well, (June Meyer suggests using your hands and I agree, because I broke a plastic serving spoon trying to toss this), till cucumbers slices and sour cream are all frothy and foamy.

Place in serving dish and sprinkle a little paprika on top for decoration, and serve well chilled.
This will stay good in refrigerator for a few days.

Serves 4.
