This is a very quick and cool summer salad, but it's also good year-round. Serve cold or at room temperature.

Instructions Checklist
  • 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.

  • Transfer cucumber to a colander and rinse with cold water; drain thoroughly and transfer to a dry surface. Pat cucumbers dry with paper towel.

  • 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.

Spiral-cut the cucumbers and did not salt them, as we wanted to eat this right away. There are many dill-cuke recipes on this site, and although we enjoyed this, next time I would use less olive oil (just our taste preference). This one is a "dieter's delight!" Read More

Perfect side dish for a hot summer day. I skipped salting the cucumbers and doubled the dressing (personal preference) this recipe is spot on. Love it! Read More

We have been keeping a fresh batch in the fridge.....replacing as the previous runs out! It does not last long around here! I did change the vinegar to apple cider vinegar & we add onions or chives or both. Also used local honey instead of sugar & left out the salt. Read More
