Dill Pickle Cucumber Slices

The cucumber pickles in this recipe will not take you more than 10 minutes to prepare. They will be sweet and crunchy, and maybe a bit sour too.  You can serve them up as an accompaniment to your favorite sandwiches, as a side dish to your favorite grilled meats, or placed on grilled or pulled meat sandwiches.

Dill Pickle Cucumber Slices
Makes 1- 1/3 cups
Recipe from Sara Moulton

One 5-to 6 inch-inch piece seedless ( English) cucumber
Note: I used 4-6 small kirby cucumbers
2 tablespoons fresh dill leaves or 1 teaspoon dried
2 tablespoons cider vinegar
1- 1/2 teaspoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Thinly slice enough of the cucumber to make 1-1/3 cups.  Finely chop the dill (about 1 tablespoon).  Combine the cucumber with the vinegar, dill, sugar, salt, and pepper in a small nonreactive bowl.  Set it aside at room temperature and use within an hour, or cover and refrigerate for later use.

  1. One of my favorite ways to enjoy cucumbers is tossed with some sugar and cider vinegar. I've never tried adding dill though, even though I know many people do. Either way, it's a perfect summer side dish and I\”m thinking it's time to get some dill in my next batch!


  2. Hi Velva… thanks for stopping by my site the other day. Glad you liked my pasta dish. I am a total salad fanatic myself. Sometimes I will eat just a simple salad for lunch. As most other folks have pointed out, using dill is interesting (and I like interesting when it comes to food). Next time I feel like a salad I will definitely try this.aipi (http://usmasala.blogspot.com/)
