Calories 13kcal


  • Medium Bowl


  • 1 Cucumber
  • 1 Medium Onion - thinly sliced
  • ½ Clove Garlic - minced
  • 2 Tbsp. Sugar
  • 1 tsp. Salt
  • Pepper - to taste
  • Vinegar - to taste


  • Peel the cucumber and onion and slice them very thinly. Place in a salad bowl.
  • Add salt and garlic. Then sugar and vinegar, to taste. To lessen the taste of vinegar, add water to vinegar. The result should be enough liquid to just cover the cuke slices.
  • Top with black pepper and refridgerate for few minutes to allow the flavors to combine.


This is the true Central Slovakian version.  Some add a Tablespoon of Sour Cream for added richness and white color in the liquid.
