Recipe: Summer Cucumber Salad


Cucumber Salad


“Cucumber Salad is great because you make it ahead, and it can sit (in the refrigerator) for several day,” says Stacy Gould from Whole in the Wall Restaurant.  “It just gets better.”

Toss together 3 cups of thinly sliced cucumbers, 1 finely chopped onion, 1/4 cup of fresh lemon juice, a tablespoon of sugar, 1/4 teaspoon of black pepper and the secret ingredient:  1/4 cup of dill.  Chill and serve.

What’s your favorite, most nutritious salad topper?


  1. I love cucumber salads! And Stacy is right, cucumber salads get better with age. All the yummy flavors soak into the cucumber and make it even better on day two and three, etc. I love it! I like adding tomatoes to my cucumber salads. Dill sounds like a great addition too!

  2. Thanks for commenting Gina; I'll have to try adding a few tomatoes the next time I make the cucumber salad. That sounds like a nice addition, which I'm sure will taste great!

    Thanks again,

  3. sliced cucumber in seasoned vinegar is a traditional snack here in the philippines.
