• Sweet & Sour Cucumbers With Fresh Dill!! Posted on October 21, 2013


    Sweet & Sour Cucumbers With Fresh Dill!! One great thing about harvest time is that the veggies are so delicious, and they taste great in the simplest of salads. Dressed with nothing but a little vinegar, salt, and sugar, this cucumber salad is fresh and sweet.

    Note- Though the recipe calls for English hothouse cucumbers, I swapped in the smaller Persian cucumbers, which still tasted very good. Slice the cucumbers very thin with a mandolin if you have one or a sharp chef's knife, which is what I used.

    Ingredients
    2 English hothouse cucumbers (1 1/2 pounds total), unpeeled, very thinly sliced
    1 tablespoon coarse kosher salt
    1/2 cup distilled white vinegar
    1/4 cup finely chopped fresh dill
    3 tablespoons sugar
    1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

    Directions
    Place cucumber slices in colander. Sprinkle with salt; toss to coat. Let stand 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
    Meanwhile, for dressing, stir vinegar, dill, sugar, and pepper in large bowl until sugar is dissolved.
    Drain cucumbers well; pat dry. Add cucumbers to dressing and stir to blend.
    Refrigerate at least 15 minutes and up to 2 hours; serve cold.
    Makes 6 to 8 servings.
