  1. Spread cucumber slices in a thin layer on a large platter. Sprinkle salt generously over the cucumber. Let salt soak into cucumber slices for about 30 minutes.
  2. Transfer cucumber to a colander and rinse with cold water; drain thoroughly and transfer to a dry surface. Pat cucumbers dry with paper towel.
  3. Whisk vinegar, olive oil, sugar, and dill together in a large bowl. Add cucumber slices and tomatoes; toss to coat.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • You may skip the step of salting the cucumber if in a hurry, but it does take the bitterness out of cucumbers.
  • Use 1 cup grape tomatoes in place of the chopped tomato if you wish.
