Cool As A Cucumber-Eat the Seasons Friday
This year our garden has given us the best cucumber crop that we have ever had. One of our favorite cucumber recipes is so easy to make. I often ate a version of this when I lived in the Dominican Republic. It is very refreshing and tastes like summer to me. There are many ways to make it but here is how we do it,
3 Medium Cucumbers
½ cup Apple Cider Vinegar
1 Tablespoon salt
2-3 Tablespoons sugar( I like 2 as I prefer this dish more sour than sweet)
3 Tablespoons Fresh Dill or 3 Teaspoons Dried Dill
Mix all ingredients but cucumbers in a bowl. Cube or slice Cucumbers and add to mix. Refrigerate for at least a half hour to allow to marinate. Enjoy.
You can use other types of vinegar. The most common substitute would be white vinegar. I want to try it with Balsamic vinegar next. You can also add other vegetables like green beans, onions, or baby zucchini.
