If you are lucky enough to have a garden, or perhaps are just lucky to know someone with a garden who likes to share, you probably have a lot of cucumbers. In honor of the last day of summer (waaaa!), here is a super simple cucumber salad.
I made this all summer long to serve with anything off the grill, or alongside of my favorite Tomato Pie. I always use fresh dill, but will throw in fresh basil and mint if I have access to it.
Garden cucumbers often have a thick, sometimes bitter, skin and lots of seeds. I like to peel the cucumber, slice it lengthwise and scrape out the seeds using a teaspoon. If you are feeling motivated and have the time you can salt the cucumbers in a strainer for 30-45 minutes to drain off excess water before making the salad, but this is not necessary.
Soak up the last day of summer!
