This cucumber salad is so perfect--cool, refreshing, satisfying, and really easy. It's especially good when made with the pickling cucumbers from summer farmer's markets!
- 4 cucumbers, peeled and sliced as thinly as you can
- 1 small yellow onion, minced
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 cup white vinegar
- 1/2 tbs dried dill
Boil the sugar, water, white vinegar in dill. Mix together the cucumber slices and onion; once the vinegar/sugar/water mix is boiling, pour it over the cucumber slices and onion mixture. Let it sit in the fridge for a day before eating (if you can resist). It is good after the first day but continues to get better--I often end up doubling the recipe to let it last a week!
