  3. Whisk vinegar, olive oil, sugar, and dill together in a large bowl. Add cucumber slices and tomatoes; toss to coat.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes:
  • You may skip the step of salting the cucumber if in a hurry, but it does take the bitterness out of cucumbers.
  • Use 1 cup grape tomatoes in place of the chopped tomato if you wish.

Spiral-cut the cucumbers and did not salt them, as we wanted to eat this right away. There are many dill-cuke recipes on this site, and although we enjoyed this, next time I would use less olive oil (just our taste preference). This one is a "dieter's delight!"
