Dilly Cucumber Salad

I LOOOVE this dish! I make it about once a week. I really love the dill in it too.

Dilly Cucumber Salad

Makes 2 large servings or at least 4 small servings

  • 1 large long English Cucumber, cut into ribbons with a mandolin or vegetable peeler(or you can cut it into thin rounds)
  • 1 1/2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2-3/4 tsp sugar or honey(to taste)
  • 1/4 C chopped fresh dill(or you can substitute 1+ tbsp of dried dill)

In a small bowl mix together the dressing ingredients and leave them while you cut your cucumber. Cut your cucumber however you like. This time I did long noodle like pieces, but the last time I made it I took a veggie peeler and sliced 2″ long “noodles” all the way around the cucumber till I got to the end. Or you can just slice the end to get thin rounds. Just before serving mix the cucumber with the dressing. If you can, try to drain the cucumber before adding the dressing as there’s a lot of juice in the bottom of the bowl usually and you don’t want it to be too watery.
