I love crisp, refreshing cucumbers, so this cucumber dill salad has become a family favorite that I make often.
When I was a kid, I did not like store bought cucumbers with their seeds and hard, waxy skin. No amount of prodding could get me to like them.
Then I discovered that not all cucumbers have hard, waxy skin.
Both have a similar flavor, so the main difference between the two is the size. Persian cucumbers are small and English cucumbers are long.
I cut off just a tiny bit from the ends and then use the entire cucumber, peel and all.
This Cucumber Dill Salad only takes a few minutes to prepare, and it is easy on the budget.
However, I never seem to get tired of eating it!
