Cucumber, Red Onion and Dill Shaved Salad

A simple, summery cucumber salad looks more elegant when the cucumbers are peeled into long strips using a mandoline or a vegetable peeler. Mound the vegetables prettily on a small salad plate or, for maximum effect, serve them in a small clear bowl or glass.


Cucumber, Red Onion and Dill Shaved Salad


2 English cucumbers

1/2 red onion

3 Tbs. chopped fresh dill

2 Tbs. chopped fresh mint

2 Tbs. rice vinegar

1⁄4 cup (2 fl. oz./60 ml) extra-virgin olive oil

Sea salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste


Using a mandoline or potato peeler, shave cucumbers lengthwise into thin ribbons. Thinly slice the onion. In a bowl, toss the cucumbers and onion with dill, mint, vinegar and olive oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper and serve at once. Serves 4.
