Cool Cucumber Salad with Lime and Dill

Swedish

Hot days call for cooling foods that are a snap to prepare. This refreshing salad fits the bill perfectly. Try it with Simple Grilled Salmon for a light meal on a warm summer evening.
Ingredients
2 cucumbers, peeled and sliced very thin (use mandolin if you have one)
1/4 cup minced red onion
1/4 cup chopped fresh dill
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
Pinch of sugar
Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
 
Steps
1 Place all ingredients in a glass bowl and toss. Use a light hand with the salt and pepper, as you want the bright flavors of the lime and dill to come through.

2 Refrigerate for 30-90 minutes, then toss well again. Adjust seasoning if necessary. The cucumber will have released a lot of water, so it is best served with a slotted spoon.
