Amazingly refreshing Cucumber Salad


2 (16 oz. each) large English cucumbers, thinly sliced

1 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper

3 Tbsp apple cider vinegar

2 Tbsp olive oil

1 Tbsp mayonnaise

1 tsp honey

1 1/2 Tbsp finely minced fresh parsley

1 Tbsp minced fresh dill

1 tsp minced fresh garlic

1/4 medium red onion, thinly sliced (1/2 cup)


  1. Place sliced cucumbers in a colander. Sprinkle with salt and toss to evenly coat, while separating slices so salt coats all cucumbers. Transfer colander to refrigerator set over a plate to allow cucumbers to drain 30 - 60 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile in a mixing bowl whisk together apple cider vinegar, olive oil, mayonnaise, honey, parsley, dill, garlic, and pepper until blended. Chill until ready to use.
  3. Place red onion in a fine mesh sieve, rinse and drain.
  4. Spread cucumbers over a double layer of paper towels. Top with another layer of paper towels then roll paper towels up (with cucumbers inside) and press to remove excess liquid.
  5. Transfer cucumbers and red onion to a large bowl. Whisk dressing again until blended then pour over cucumbers. Toss to coat well. Serve within one hour.
