Cucumber Salad with Sour Cream
This creamy yet refreshing cucumber salad, called uborka saláta, is a traditional accompaniment to paprikash. The skin on an English cucumber is thin, but we prefer to remove it anyway. Salting the sliced cucumber for an hour prior to dressing removes excess moisture that otherwise would turn the salad watery. Be sure to drain the slices after salting and pat them dry with paper towels.
