German Dilled Cucumber Salad (serves 4)

This salad is very quick to make and the dill gives a distinctive flavor. The dressing is a white wine vinegar with a little added sugar to cut the vinegary flavor. The color comes from the addition of red onion. The salad is crisp, light and refreshing.

1/2 of a large English cucumber – sliced and with each slice cut in half or quarters
1/2 a small red onion – finely sliced and with each slice cut in half
1 tbsp. dill – chopped
1 tbsp. white wine vinegar
1/4 teasp. sugar (taste and add more if necessary)
Pinch of salt

Put first three ingredients in a shallow dish.
Mix white wine vinegar, sugar and salt together, then pour over salad ingredients and mix well.
Let stand for about 1/2 an hour before serving to let vinegar mixture flavor the salad.
