When we were in Hamburg last year, we had a wonderful cucumber salad. It was not only tasty, but also very refreshing. After doing some searching, I concluded that the salad that we had was called Gurkensalat, or Cucumber Dill Salad. I’ve made it a number of times. Each time, the salad is outstanding, and reminiscent of our time in Hamburg! I finely slice my vegetables with a 3mm blade in my food processor. The salad needs at least an hour, covered in the refrigerator, for the flavors to meld together. The result is a refreshing salad that keeps for about a week in the refrigerator. Yum!
