Cucumber and Red Onion Salad
Yields 6 Servings

2 cucumbers, peeled and sliced very thin
salt
1 cup cider vinegar
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 red onion, cut in half and sliced thin
fresh dill, chopped

Place the cucumber slices in layers in a large colander, lightly
salting each layer before starting the next. Place a large plate,
weighted with a heavy object, on top of the layers of cucumbers.
Place the colander over a large bowl (to catch the drippings).
Refrigerate.

Heat the vinegar, sugar and red onions in a saucepan over low heat
until the sugar dissolves (2-3 minutes). Transfer to a serving
bowl. Cool.

Remove the cucumbers from the refrigerator. Rinse thoroughly under
cold water. Pat dry with paper towels. Add to the onion mixture.

Refrigerate, covered, for at least 3 hours (overnight is better).
Drain the mixture, reserving 5 tablespoons. Toss the salad with
the dressing.

Garnish with chopped fresh dill. Serve.
