Cucumbers & Dill

Quick! You need a side dish!! This is fast and fresh.
I am a seasonal food person.During the spring and summer I tend to make lighter dishes, as I am sure most people do. This is on my plate probably 3 times a week starting now…. A while back I did a cucumber, tomato salad that was similar but this is so good and so underrated.
4 Cucumbers (pickling cukes are the best but use what’s available)
1/2 cup fresh dill, chopped
1 tsp chives, chopped
3 Tbls white wine vinegar
1 tsp sugar (softens the tang of the vinegar)
1 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp fresh cracked pepper

Peel the cucumbers and cut into 1/4 inch slices (if you have baby cukes just scrub them and leave the skin)
Place them in a bow and add all the ingredients.
Gently toss and coat the cucumbers.
You can serve immediately.
These do not store too well they can get a little soggy so its best to serve them the same day.
There is no oil in this recipe.

    Looks so simple and fresh–like an unpicked pickle!

    I meant ‘unpickled’. 🙂
