Simple Cucumber Salad #CookforJulia
So as I surveyed my bounty spread out on the kitchen table upon returning home, I knew I had to find something to #CookforJulia that included cucumbers for my next endeavor. Fortunately, of the three cookbooks I have left to cook from, two contained cucumber recipes. And the third is Baking with Julia...so I baked a loaf of bread today, as well - that's coming up in the next day or so.
You could peel your cucumbers, if you like. I like to leave mine on, especially if I know where they were grown. To make these fun, I just ran a zester (the kind with the holey things side-by-side) down the cucumber in an uneven fashion. I'd like to say it's simply because the kids love it that way...but honestly, so do I.
- 2 large cucumbers
- ½-1 tsp. salt
- ½ tsp. sugar
- 1 Tbs. white wine vinegar (use less or more, to taste)
- fresh dill
You can find similar ones on Amazon (average price of $5).
