Recipe For Sweet and Sour Cucumbers With Fresh Dill

Refreshing Summer Side: Sweet and Sour Cucumbers

Notes

Though the recipe calls for English hothouse cucumbers, I swapped in the smaller Persian cucumbers, which still tasted very good. Slice the cucumbers very thin with a mandoline if you have one or a sharp chef's knife, which is what I used.
