With just 4 ingredients this authentic German cucumber salad recipe makes a perfect side salad. Especially in summer time, this cucumber salad (Gurkensalad in German) is deliciously refreshing. You're going to love this simpel four-ingredient salad. It takes just about 5 minutes to prep. I recommend to let it sit for about 15-30 minutes to allow the flavors to marinate.
Slice the cucumber very fine, juice the lemon, add sugar and salt. Optionally add chopped dill. Allow to rest for 15-30 minutes.
