Cucumber Dill Salad

Cucumber Dill Salad

I love cucumbers and find myself eating more of them in the summer. There is something about a cucumber salad that feels like summer to me. It was hot last night, and I was in the mood for a salad. I had a couple of cucumbers, so I decided to make this to have with dinner last night. It was perfect.

I used a mix of vinegar, oil, salt, sugar and dill. By mixing the salad a couple of hours before dinner, the cucumbers become a sort of fresh pickle.

You don’t have to wait, though. The salad tastes good when freshly made. I just prefer the way it tastes after the flavors have a chance to blend a bit.

The nice thing about a salad like this, is that it keeps fresh and tasty for days. I even like to drain the cucumbers and add them to a sandwich, like you would add a pickle.

2 English cucumbers, sliced thin – any cuke would work, though
