    I really enjoyed this simple little salad. I did not peel the cucumber because I used cute, round, yellow ones I grew myself and I thought they were pretty. I was also lucky enough to have some dill growing in my garden as well! CQ

    I used english cucumbers with olive oil and enjoyed a very good cucumber salad. The lemon and dill added fresh flavors. Another keeper from out team! Made and reviewed for the Culinary Quest event 2014 - Cruisin Culinary Queens.

    We loved this easy and very tasty salad! I did let it chill about two hours before serving. I did not take a photo as I used regular cucumbers and thought the photo with the lemon cucumbers was such a good fit for the recipe. Thanks for the yummy post.

    This is great. It is so simple and easy to throw together, and the lemon dill dressing really makes it pop. Great to make and then stick in the fridge while pulling the rest of the meal together. Thanks for sharing! Made for Culinary Quest '14.


<p>I&nbsp;live in Seattle, but have also lived in the DC area, the Mid-west, California,&nbsp;the South, and New England,&nbsp;as&nbsp;well as China and India plus travel a fair bit, so I have experienced a good number of cuisines and like them all. I&nbsp;eat mostly vegetarian and mostly do a lot of scratch cooking. I am known for my creative use of leftovers and whatever is in the fridge. Too bad those recipes can't go easily into Zaar.</p>
