German Dilled Cucumber Salad (serves 4 as a side salad)

Prep. time — 15 minutes plus half and hour standing time

Known in Germany as gurkensalat, this summery salad is crisp, light and refreshing and is dressed with white wine vinegar and a touch of sugar to cut the acidity. The dill gives it a distinctive flavor.

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 diced
1 tbsp. dill – chopped
1 tbsp. white wine vinegar
Pinch of sugar
Pinch of salt

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