This recipe is also from the cookbook "Bon Appetit Fast Easy Fresh" and would be very light and refreshing to serve with sandwiches, burgers or grilled fish.
It is quick and easy to make. The English cucumbers are definitely preferable in this recipe.
2 English CUCUMBERS, unpeeled and thinly sliced
1 Tbsp. KOSHER SALT
1/2 c. distilled WHITE VINEGAR
1/4 c. fresh DILL, finely chopped
3 Tbsp. SUGAR
1/2 tsp. freshly ground BLACK PEPPER
Place cucumber slices in colander. Sprinkle with coarse salt; toss to coat.
Let stand 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Meanwhile, for dressing, stir vinegar, dill, sugar, and pepper in a large bowl unti sugar dissolves.
Drain cucumbers well; pat dry. Add cucumbers to dressing and stir to blend.
Refrigerate at least 15 minutes or longer.
Note: You may like to add some sliced scallion or diced onion or diced peppers to this,
or perhaps add some Kalamata black olives and some crumbled feta cheese.
