Slovak cream cucumber salad recipe

Cream Cucumber Salad

A very simple but tasty salad made in Slovakia with cucumbers and whipping cream or sour cream. 


  • 500 grams cucumbers
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons vinegar
  • 1/3-1/2 cup whipping cream or sour cream (or buttermilk or kefir)
  • garlic (optional)
  • fresh dill (optional)
  • pinch sugar (optional)


  1. Slice cucumbers very thinly, for example with a mandoline slicer. Combine all ingredients in a bowl, and mix. Because its easy like that.

    The cucumbers will release a fair amount of water, thinning out the cream/sour cream.

  2. Serve cold for a refreshing salad!
