Dilled Cucumber Salad Recipe

This cool, refreshing salad is a low-carb variation of a traditional, high-sugar, marinated cucumber salad. Try this fat-free side dish at your next BBQ.

Ingredients

  • 3 large unwaxed Kirby (pickling) cucumbers
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup white wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • few drops hot pepper sauce (optional)
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh dill

Directions

  1. Trim ends of cucumber and slice thinly. There should be about two cups. Sprinkle salt over the cucumber slices and allow to stand in a colander while you prepare the other ingredients.
  2. In a measuring cup, combine vinegar, water, sugar and pepper sauce. Rinse cucumber slices and drain on paper towels. In a large bowl, toss cucumber and dill together with the dressing.
  3. The salad can be served immediately but improves if refrigerated for several hours for the flavors to blend.
