Now that farmers' markets are brimming with great-tasting produce at peak ripeness, it's time to put your haul of fresh cucumbers to good use! Try this refreshing cucumber salad to cool off and stay hydrated this summer:
Makes 3 servings
1 lb cucumbers w/peel, raw (smaller cucumbers are ideal)
2 tsp - olive oil
1/4 cup - vinegar, distilled
2 tbsp - dill, fresh
1 tbsp - raw onion, chopped
1/2 tsp - granulated sugar
¼ - ½ tsp – sea salt
1/4 tsp – black pepper
To slice cucumber, a mandolin is ideal, or slice very thin. Place sliced cucumber in a strainer to strain the cucumber juice.

Place strained cucumber in a bowl and pour over vinaigrette. Toss well.
