Credit: Cser es Marton Anyuka


  • 6 large English seedless cucumbers, peeled and sliced thin
  • 1 tbsp salt


  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • ¼ cup white vinegar
  • ½ tsp garlic powder or 1 clove garlic, minced
  • ½ tsp pepper
  • 2 tsp. sugar
  • ½ teaspoon Hungarian Paprika


  1. Slice cucumbers as thin as possible, preferably using a mandolin
  2. Salt cucumbers and let stand in bowl for 1 hour
  3. In separate bowl, mix sour cream, vinegar, minced garlic, sugar, pepper and paprika and set aside
  4. Cucumbers will release a lot of moisture
  5. After an hour, take a handful of cucumbers and squeeze out as much juice as you can, continuing until they are all done
  6. Combine cucumbers and sour cream sauce and mix well
  7. Adjust salt if necessary and chill for an hour or two before serving
  • Sour cream can be substituted with goat plain yogurt
  • Sugar can be substituted with honey
  • My Mother in law, Marton Mama, never used to add paprika in her recipe, so you can enjoy it either way!
