Few things are more refreshing than this light crunchy Cucumber & Dill Salad. Serve it as a side to perk up Basic Poached Salmon, or to provide some cool crunch with one of our spicier dishes.
1. In a medium bowl mix together the vinegar and onions. Let sit for 1 hour.
2. Cut the cucumber into quarters lengthwise and remove the seeds. Then cut them into ¼-inch thick slices. Sprinkle the cucumber with salt and add to the onions. Mix in the chopped mint. Chill for 30 minutes, then serve.
