I always adore anything about

Sound the alarms!  I have a new salad in my life.  It’s become my warm-weather obsession, and it’s the EASIEST salad EVER to throw together.

When I was young, we always at lots of cucumber and tomato salad (which I love), but I never tasted this salad until I moved down south.  I mean, let’s be honest… any salad with cucumber is my jam!

It took WAY too long for me to try this at home, but I do believe I’ve perfected the recipe for a simple vinegary cucumber, onion, and dill salad.  Voila!


This salad is perfect to make ahead and is even easier to prepare if you have a mandolin slicer handy.  (I use this one!)  Just a few ingredients, you toss it in a bowl, refrigerate, and that’s it!

2 english cucumbers, thinly sliced

1/2 red onion, thinly sliced

1 1/2 Tbsp. chopped fresh dill weed

1/4 cup white vinegar

2 Tbsp. water

2 packets no sugar sweetener (I use Truvia)

1 tsp. kosher salt + more to taste


1.  Thinly slice your cucumbers with a mandolin slicer, and place in a large bowl.

2.  Slice your onion and chop your dill, and combine it in the bowl with the cucumbers.


3.  In a small bowl, mix the remaining ingredients and whisk until well blended.  Pour over veggie mixture, and stir to combine.



4.  Refrigerate overnight, and then serve and enjoy!  Note:  I added a few shakes of table salt upon tasting it, but totally your call!  You can always add more, but you can’t take it away.

False alarm
