Recipe: Cucumber Salad


Cucumber frequently gets paired with mint, which highlights its coolness, but here the sweet fragrance of dill brings out the sweetness of a ripe cucumber. You frequently see this salad with the cucumber peeled. I think that misses the point of the green skin mixed with the pinkness of the red onion.

1 cucumber portion (about 100-150g)
1/2 red onion, finely sliced
1 tsp sugar
1 tbsp vinegar (white wine or cider)
1 tbsp dill, finely chopped

Halve the cucumber lengthwise and scoop out the seeds with a spoon and discard them.
Slice the cucumber as finely as you can.
Put the cucumber in a bowl with the other ingredients.
Season with salt & pepper.
Mix thoroughly and set aside for at least half an hour at room temperature before serving.

Serves 2 as a side salad
