  • 2 large English cucumbers thinly sliced
  • 1 tbsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 red onion thinly sliced
  • 1 scallion thinly sliced
  • 2-3 tbsp fresh dill chopped
  • 1 1/2 tbsp champagne vinegar or white wine vinegar
  • 2 tsp honey
  • pepper to taste


  • Add the sliced cucumber to a colander and toss with the salt. 
  • Set the colander in your sink or on top of a plate, as the salt will pull liquid from the cucumbers. Let this sit for 20 minutes, then rinse the cucumber with cold water.
  • Add the drained cucumber to a salad bowl along with the red onion, scallion and fresh dill. 
  • Stir the vinegar and honey together in a separate small bowl, then pour on top of the salad.
  • Garnish with pepper and additional fresh dill leaves.
