Variations on cucumber salad

by | Aug 15, 2014 | Vegetable dishes

Cucumber salad is the most popular salad in Hungary. Half of the Hungarians prefer the cucumber salad with sour cream, the other half swear by the recipe with vinegar. Both are wonderful, no matter which one you choose. You can make both versions at once and at the end just take some cucumber out and combine it with the sour cream.

Hungarian cottage cheese

This is what Hungarian túró looks like

You often ask me what kind of cottage cheese (or curd cheese or farmer's cheese - call it what you want) I use in the recipes. In Hungary the store-bought cottage cheese is dry and crumbly as you can see in the picture. So if a recipe calls for túró, I mean this type. If you can't obtain túró, you can try to make your own from whole milk. Click on the link below.

Metric system vs cup

In Hungary metric units are in use, all the recipes on this website are based on this system, so a kitchen scale is necessary. Since I’m not familiar with cup as a measurement unit, I convert grams to cups by using an online converter. The values in brackets, therefore, are only approximate volumes, so, please, double-check them before you start cooking.
