Are you wondering what to do with all of those cucumbers in your garden? Or what last minute dish to bring to a backyard party? This is my favorite go to recipe for a fresh summer salad that is quick and easy!
I make this at least once a week… It’s that good. It actually takes about 5 minutes for me to make due to frequent practice. I went on the safe side with 15, but that is the maximum it would take to make this dish.
3 Cucumbers- I use pickling cucumbers or smaller ones
Pepper (to taste)
Salt (to taste)
Fresh dill- this is the key ingredient. I use dill from my garden. You can use dried dill, but it tastes much better with fresh.
Vinegar- 1/4 cup
Olive oil- 1/4 cup
1. Chop Cucumbers
I chopped mine to 1/4 in. thickness, but it can be to your liking.
2. Chop Dill and add Dry Ingredients
Remove the stems and chop the dill leaves finely and place them in the bowl with the cucumbers. Add the salt and pepper to taste. I used Himalayan pink salt and black pepper.
3. Vinegar and Oil
Add equal parts vinegar and oil and mix it all up! Marinate in the refrigerator for as long as you would like and serve cold.
This is one of my favorite recipes! It is so easy and can be modified to serve a large group or dinner for two. It would also be wonderful with goat cheese crumbles and cherry tomatoes. Simple and delicious, perfect for summer gatherings.
