Cucumber Salad with Hungarian Paprika

Time: 15 minutes
Effort: Easy

1 whole seedless cucumber (or English) sliced extremely thin with a mandolin
2 tsp salt
1/3 cup white wine vinegar
1/3 cup cold water
1 tbsp sugar
1 tsp garlic powder (not garlic salt) (optional)
2 tsp Hungarian sweet paprika
1 tsp ground pepper
4 tsp sour cream
Parsley for garnish

In a nice serving bowl, add sliced cucumbers and salt. Mix well with your hands to ensure all slices are coated in salt. Let sit for about 10 minutes then squeeze out excess fluid. Add sugar and mix again. Then add vinegar, garlic, water and mix. Garnish with Paprika, sour cream and pepper. Refrigerate until ready to use. (This salad is actually better served the next day.)

Bon Appetit !
