Marinated Cucumber Salad with Dill

Makes 4 to 6 servings

2 large cucumbers, peeled, very thinly sliced
2 tps coarse sea salt or kosher salt
½ cup white or apple cider vinegar
1/3 cup water
1/3 cup sugar
2 Tbs fresh chopped dill
Salt and pepper to taste


1. In a large bowl, use your hands to thoroughly but gently mix the cucumbers and salt.
2. Place a plate on top of the cucumbers, then place a 2-3 lb. weight (such as a large can of vegetables) on the plate to weigh it down (this helps release the salt.) Set the cucumbers aside to marinate at room temperature for several hours or in the refrigerator overnight.
3. Drain the cucumbers thoroughly in a colander and pat them dry on a clean dish towel. Rinse and dry the bowl, then return the cucumbers to the bowl.
4. Mix the vinegar, water, sugar, salt, and pepper in a small pot over medium heat and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, stirring often, until the sugar is dissolved, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat.
5. Pour the hot vinegar mixture over the cucumber slices. Sprinkle with the dill and mix to combine.
6. Chill for at least 3 hours. Drain and serve.
