Cucumber Salad with Fresh Dill

CAP Flyer

This simple, classic summer salad has lots of crunch and holds up well for picnics. Its tangy, pickle-like flavor tastes delicious with dark breads, hearty sandwiches or burgers. Use smaller, tender cucumbers for their thinner, less-bitter skin and seeds.  Prep time 20 minutes, plus two hours chill time before serving.
