Cucumber Dill Salad

My favorite thing to do with just a couple of garden fresh cucumbers.  Originally found on Allrecipes.com.

Cucumber Dill Salad

cucumbers (the sauce below will cover 2-3 medium)
1 onion
1C white vinegar
1/2C water
3/4C white sugar
1T dried dill, or 2 fresh or dried heads

  1. Slice cucumbers and onion very thinly.  The slicing blade of a food processor should work well for this.  I don't have that blade, so I used the slicing side of my box grater.  Perfect.
  2. Bring remaining ingredients to a simmer.
  3. Pour simmering liquid over cucumbers and onions.  Toss well, and press down into juice.
  4. Cover and refrigerate until cold, stirring once or twice if your cukes are not fully under the liquid.  Keeps for days refrigerated!
