Very simple and light. A nice way to use garden cucumbers.
- 3 cucumbers, peeled, seeded, halved lengthwise and sliced
- 1⁄2 cup sliced scallion, white and light green parts
- 1⁄2 cup red wine vinegar
- 1⁄4 cup white sugar
- 1⁄4-1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon pepper
- 1⁄4 teaspoon dill weed
- Place cucumbers and scallions in a large bowl.
- In a seperate bowl, whisk together red wine vinegar, sugar, salt, pepper, and dill. Pour over the cucumber/scallion mixture.
- Toss to coat evenly.
- Chill for about 2 hours. Toss again before serving.
Yea! 10 years ago I fell in love with the salads served in Bavaria, Germany where they had plates with separated mounds of marinated cucumber slices, shredded carrots or radishes, and French style green beans. I have been trying to duplicate the flavors ever since. This is it! I vary the ingredients according to which vegetable I'm marinating. Often, I omit all but the vinegar and sugar. I have noticed that some red wine vinegars are a lot more sour than others, though. I have had best results using Pompeii brand. Many, many thanks.
Very very tasty. I used fresh grown cucumbers only I left a thin strip of peel on them for some color and followed the recipe exactly. We really enjoyed the dill in the dish. Definately will make again. Made for Zaar Alphabet Soup tag game.
Because I have no home grown cucumbers right now, I followed the directions and peeled mine. I also seeded them, which I normally don't do when I marinate cucumbers. I think they would have been prettier if I hadn't peeled them, or just peeled stripes off. The taste of these is absolutely wonderful. I'd only used the vinegar, sugar, salt and pepper before .... the dill was new for me. Seeded, these looked more like crescent moons than half moons, which was a different look for me too. I really loved these, and will make these again and again, especially when my cucumbers are coming in from the garden! Thanks for sharing a wonderful version of marinated cucumbers!
