I love this cucumber salad and make it often. I make it with Persian cucumbers we get from a little Armenian market in the Valley -- they are crisp and bright and delicate and cool and refreshing...so easy to throw together -- we have it at least once a week! —coffeefoodwrite

I finally made this and really enjoyed it! I served it with salmon and the dill was very nice with it. I have a sweet tooth so added a couple of pinches of sugar. Thanks for the recipe!

So glad you liked it and it turned out -- the pinch of sugar sounds like a nice touch!
