Cucumber Salad with Dill Recipe


Cucumber Dill

This fresh and delicate spring cucumber salad makes a great side dish for fish, lamb, veal, chicken, or smoked meat. The combination of cucumber and dill is hardly new, but it’s very, very good.


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


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.

Mix all the ingredients together, then let rest for a minimum of 2 hours before serving.
