Fresh vegetables are usually always served next to each main dish in Hungary. That’s why we should never forget about the good old cucumber salad or as Hungarians call it, “Uborka Saláta”. It’s typically served with heavy and meat-centric meals such as “Paprikás” or “Pörkölt”, two famous Hungarian stew dishes. Although it’s a salad, it’s not an appetizer but a side dish Hungarians eat alongside their main meal. You may wonder why?

Some likes to add sour cream, but traditionally it comes without it. This recipe’s origin is unknown, but we can assure you that you can find this salad in every Hungarian grandmother’s old recipe book.
