My Mother and Grandmother's Cucumber Salad. A Wolgadeutsche Holiday Favorite!



2 large cucumbers sliced thin

1/2 onion sliced thin


1/2 cup sour cream

2 tablespoons white vinegar

1 teaspoon dried dill

1 teaspoon dried parsley

1 teaspoon paprika


Slice cucumbers thin and add salt. Let cucumbers sit for a few hours in a colander with paper towel underneath. This is my Mom's secret step to keeping the cucumbers from getting soggy.

Rinse off excess salt. Next combine the rest of the ingredients and mix. Let sit in the fridge overnight.
