Refreshingly Sweet Cucumber Salad

So last night I put a good deal of effort into figuring out how to carefully pour cucumber salad juice directly from my empty dinner plate into my mouth.

True story.

It was then that I realized that I have finally discovered the very best cucumber salad recipe and that I must share it with you!  It is sweet, tangy, and refreshing.  It will be perfect for when you have a plethora of cucumbers in your garden this summer, but don't wait until then!  Run to the store and pick up a cucumber now!

Here it is, friends…

  • 1 large cucumber, thinly sliced
  • 1 small white onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 celery stalks, thinly sliced and diced
  • 1/2 cup white vinegar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup +2 tablespoons sugar (or 6 tablespoons sugar)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons dry dill

  • Mix cucumber, onion, and celery in large bowl
  • Mix vinegar, water, and sugar together in small pot on stove and bring to a boil
  • Pour liquid over vegetables
  • Mix in dill
  • Cover and refrigerate for at least one hour (the longer, the yummier)
  • Serve cold
Yum yum yum!

    1. I hope you tried it and loved it, Ali! I finished off the last of ours a couple of nights ago and then started drinking liquid from the container it was stored in. HELP!!! :)
