The cucumber pickles in this recipe will not take you more than 10 minutes to prepare. They will be sweet and crunchy, and maybe a bit sour too. You can serve them up as an accompaniment to your favorite sandwiches, as a side dish to your favorite grilled meats, or placed on grilled or pulled meat sandwiches.

Makes 1- 1/3 cups
Recipe from Sara Moulton
One 5-to 6 inch-inch piece seedless ( English) cucumber
Note: I used 4-6 small kirby cucumbers
2 tablespoons fresh dill leaves or 1 teaspoon dried
2 tablespoons cider vinegar
1- 1/2 teaspoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Thinly slice enough of the cucumber to make 1-1/3 cups. Finely chop the dill (about 1 tablespoon). Combine the cucumber with the vinegar, dill, sugar, salt, and pepper in a small nonreactive bowl. Set it aside at room temperature and use within an hour, or cover and refrigerate for later use.
Velva…thanks for reminding me that I could make these simpler veggie dishes and enjoy them immensely. We have an apple cider vinegar producer not far…hence, I will try making your cucumbers with this small substitute. Thanks for the idea ;o)Have a wonderful week and flavourful wishes,Claudia
That is what I call instant pickles. So easy and looks so good.Rita
A quick and delicious cucumber delight!
I recently made quick pickles the same way and loved them. My mom and I ate the whole bowl:) Yours look thick and delicious.
Instant pickle to be enjoyed and eaten with pleasure.Wishing you a great Sunday ♥
Maybe I will try this just for my own use. I have been pickling cucumbers to take back to the for winter. Diane
Sweet, crunchy and a bit sour sound right up my alley. Thanks for sending this along.
Love fresh made pickles, usually I make bread & butter pickles (why are they called that?) but this looks like a nice diversion. Now where'd I put that burger?
I have been dying to make my own pickles lately! Thanks for sharing this!

This reminds me of the cucumbers my mom made me when I was little. I need to try this and I also need to give mom a call…

We Are Not Martha
When I was a kid, I hated dill. And would get so mad when my parents put it on cucumbers (even though I loved dill pickles). Now, I'm a big fan of fresh dill. These are so simple and delicious :)Sues

The Short (dis)Order Cook
One of my favorite ways to enjoy cucumbers is tossed with some sugar and cider vinegar. I've never tried adding dill though, even though I know many people do. Either way, it's a perfect summer side dish and I\”m thinking it's time to get some dill in my next batch!
Hi Velva… thanks for stopping by my site the other day. Glad you liked my pasta dish. I am a total salad fanatic myself. Sometimes I will eat just a simple salad for lunch. As most other folks have pointed out, using dill is interesting (and I like interesting when it comes to food). Next time I feel like a salad I will definitely try this.aipi (http://usmasala.blogspot.com/)

A quick and fantastic delight!!Cheers,Lia.
