Cucumber with Dill

Cucumber 2

Unfortunately I spent the majority of June out of town, which caused me to not blog much.  On the other hand, in my absence with a lot of help from Mother Nature, and lots of rain my garden grew and grew.  I have found myself this July with fresh herbs, broccoli, tomatoes, peppers, beets, squash and cucumber ready for the plucking to name a few.

I cannot think of a better side dish in the hot summer heat than a fresh cucumber.

Ingredients:Cucumber 1

1 cucumber, peeled and sliced

1 tablespoon coarsely chopped fresh dill

Salt and pepper for taste

3 to 4 tablespoons vinegar (I used apple cider vinegar)

1 red onion (optional)

The dill and cucumber came from my garden, if you don’t have a garden I recommend the farmers market for the freshest produce and best taste.

Method:

Combine all ingredients in a bowl; cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.  Remember taste is always king, if you think you need more vinegar…just add it.  This receipt is really a guided amount.

Yields: about four
