Also known as uborka salata in Hungarian, this salad is a common side dish that can be served with a bowl of goulash or a plate of chicken paprikas. It has a very light and refreshing taste. I always love to eat this during the hot summer months.
Serves 4- 6.
For the dressing
5 tablespoons sugar
2 cups water
½ cup vinegar
For the cucumber salad
3 large cucumbers peeled and thinly sliced
1 clove of garlic, chopped (optional if you prefer a stronger taste)
¼ cup of fresh dill
salt and pepper to taste
For the dressing, use a small bowl to dissolve the sugar in water. Add vinegar and complete the dissolving. Set aside.
In a large bowl, wash, peel, and thinly slice the cucumbers. Season generously with salt. Let stand for 15 minutes. Pour dressing over the cucumbers until just covered. Add the garlic and dill. Refrigerate for at least an hour or overnight if possible before serving.
