To me, this salad is like a taste of summer. There’s something more to it than its simple ingredients might suggest. Cucumber, fresh dill, and garlic, the bite of vinaigrette, and a touch of sugar meld together into a salad that is pleasingly pungent and slightly sweet.

I make this Cucumber Dill Salad recipe over and over again during cucumber season. I think you will too!

Cucumber Dill Salad

Serves 4

3 cups cucumber, peeled, seeded and sliced
1 tablespoon fresh dill, minced
3 medium garlic cloves, minced
1/4 cup rice vinegar
3 tablespoons light olive oil or other vegetable oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar

Peel the cucumbers, cut them in half lengthwise and remove the seeds with a small spoon. Slice the seeded cucumbers thinly. Toss the cucumbers with the remaining ingredients in a bowl and serve.

To store, refrigerate in a covered container for up to two days.
