Gurkensalat.. German Cucumber Salad.

I      eat this almost every single day. I vary it by adding tiny tomatoes but, this is a staple of my daily diet and I just love it. 


2 big cucumbers, sliced and drained
Vidalia onion sliced very thinly or red onion sliced thinly.
1/2 tsp of salt to pull out moisture
(1/2 tsp of mustard if you wish.. but  I don't use it)
1/2 cup of sour cream
2 T. of white vinegar
1 tsp of dried dill weed
1 tsp of dried parsley
1 tsp of paprika

Remove as much of the water from the cukes as you can. Some use salt to do that and let stand for 30 minutes to drain them out. Drain on paper towels.
Squeeze out the moisture a bit.

Mix the sour cream , vinegar and spices into a small bowl and fold in the cucumber and onion slces.
You need to refrrigerate over night to marinate the flavors.
Sprinkle with a wee bit of paprika and serve.
