Cucumber Salad, a recipe

>> Tuesday, July 20, 2010

This recipe is so light and refreshing. Perfect for hot summer nights when you don't feel like cooking and a great use for the bounty of cucumbers available during these warm months!

Ingredients:
4 small to medium cucumbers, peeled and sliced
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup white vinegar
2 TBSP sugar
1 1/2 tsp dill weed
salt and pepper to taste

Place the cucumbers into a bowl, whisk together remaining ingredients and pour over cucumbers. Place a lid on the bowl and weight it down to submerge all cucumbers. Refrigerate for at least 1/2 an hour before serving. Enjoy!

I have always just used italian dressing, because I was too lazy to look up a recipe. This one looks easy, and delicious! I will be using it the next time I buy cucumbers.

Thanks, gals! :) We've eaten so many cucumbers this summer I think we're going to start growing vines and flowers ourselves, lol!

I'm going to make this because I'm getting a little tired of my usual mayonnaise based salad, and this looks so light and refreshing. Thanks for the recipe!
