Pickled Dill Cucumber Salad - Easy way to enjoy Cucumbers all Summer!
My Pickled Dill Cucumber salad make a great addition to any dish. When the heat of the season starts to get you down try this addition to your meals. English cucumbers are in abundance all rear round, and this recipe makes about 8 cups of tangy Dill flavored crunchy goodness. A great crispy snack to cool you down, this chilled crunchy salad is easy to make any time.
Cucumbers contain more water per serving than any other vegetable, an amazing 96%. This makes them great for pickling because they will absorb the pickling liquid, and maintain their shape and texture. Add some Shallots and a generous amount of Dill and you have a healthy side or salad that will give you calcium, manganese and iron. Dill also has many other health benefits, but that is for others to write about.
