Cucumber Salad with Dill Dressing


I’ve posted before about having lots of these beauties from my garden and have we enjoyed them.  This is a quick fix recipe I love to make in the summer with fresh cucumbers.  I think just about every family has a cucumber salad recipe they rely on, on a regular basis.  It is quite versatile in that you can add or change-up the vinegar or toss in tomatoes and peppers if you like.

English cucumbers, purple carrots and common cherry tomatoes.
These beautiful purple carrots are from a packet of seeds that was supposed to be a vintage mix. That okay with us the look and taste great.
