Cucumber Onion Salad

Craving something like this that my family used to make a lot in the summer when I was growing up, but not wanting to put a lot of mayo on it, I found this very simple recipe online and adapted it slightly.

  • 3 cucumbers
  • 1 sweet onion
  • Dill
  • Rice vinegar

Wash the cucumbers, then slice very thin. For bonus visual appeal, before slicing run a citrus zester down the cucumber. Slice the onion very thin. Put both of these in a bowl, throw on some dill and rice vinegar. Cover and refrigerate for several hours.

You want the sweetest onion you can get, unless you like strong onion breath, although I will note that it seems that the longer this sits, the more mild the onion becomes.
