  • 1 large bunch of dill
  • 4 tablespoons sherry vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 teaspoons coarse sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper

Directions

Peel the cucumbers, halve lengthwise and scrape out the seeds. Cut into ¼-inch slanted slices.

Chop the dill, including the stems, until medium fine.
