Serves 4 to 6. Delicious.
3 fresh picked garden cucumbers from your vegetable garden.
1/2 teaspoon salt, plain or iodized.
Freshly ground pepper to taste
1 medium fresh garden onion from your vegetable garden.
1 teaspoon granulated white sugar.
2 tablespoons white vinegar.
2 tablespoons water.
3 cloves fresh crushed garlic from your vegetable garden. (Optional)
Fresh sweet Hungarian paprika. (see paprika source listed below)
- Peel the fresh garden cucumbers. Carefully slice them, paper thin. Sprinkle with salt and let stand for 15 minutes. Squeeze out the liquid from the cucumbers.
- Peel and slice the onion very thin and mix with cucumbers. Add the salt, pepper, white vinegar, and water to cover the vegetables. You may adjust the vinegar, salt or sugar to a sweet - sour taste.
- Sprinkle the crushed garlic on top of the sliced cucumbers and onion.
- Sprinkle Hungarian paprika generously on top.
- Chill for 1/2 hour. The paprika cucumbers improve in taste as they marinate.
Additional Serving Hint: 1 Heaping Tablespoon fresh sour cream (Check the expiration date on the lid). Place on top of the paprika cucumber salad just before serving. Makes a nice presentation and it tastes sooooo good...!

Their cookbook, The Taste of Gloucester has sold over 200,000 copies. The Taste of Gloucester recipes are drawn from tradition and are variations of ethnic specialties for different occasions.
