Cucumber Salad by Suzie

We did another eastern dinner last weekend as everyone loves it so much. I made a Date Chutney and a different Cucumber Salad this time and also whipped up some pork curry to go with the Chicken Tikka. I will make some notes on the pork curry soon - it isn't really a recipe. A friend of mine used to call this method "Dump and Hope" and with curries - that is so easy! Here is the Cucumber Salad. This goes with everything - from Curries to Hamburgers!

  • 2 - 3 cucumbers, peeled, seeded and thinly sliced
  • 1 small white onion, sliced
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup white wine vinegar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 T. dried dill

  1. Toss together the cucumbers and onion in a colander. Sprinkle with salt and set aside to drain.
  2. Combine the vinegar, water and sugar in a saucepan over medium-high heat.
  3. Bring to a boil and pour over the drained cucumbers and onions.
  4. Stir in the dill, cover and refrigerate until cold.
  5. You can serve this a room temperature but allow the cucumbers to marinate at least 1 hour.
