I was given some cucumbers out of a friends garden a few days ago, as well as some fresh dill. Here's what I made: Cucumber Slices with Dill
4 large cucumbers, sliced
1 onion, thinly sliced
1 tablespoon dried dill weed (I used fresh dill)
1 cup white sugar (I cut down to 1/2 cup per the reviews)
1/2 cup white vinegar
1/2 cup water
1 teaspoon salt (optional)
In a large serving bowl, combine cucumbers, onions and dill. In a medium size bowl combine sugar, vinegar, water and salt; stir until the sugar dissolves. Pour the liquid mixture over the cucumber mixture. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours before serving (the longer this dish marinates the tastier it is!).
This turned out pretty good. I'm not a huge fan of cucumbers outside of salad, but I enjoyed this. Give it a try it a try, it makes a great summer salad!
