The sweet piquancy of this CUCUMBER AND DILL PICKLE turns smoked salmon, mackerel, trout or a simple tuna and mayonnaise sandwich into a fabulous treat! Quick and easy to make, its fresh taste is perfect for right now! Why not try it?
Run the tines of a fork down the length of a washed cucumber, then slice it thinly. Place the slices in a bowl and sprinkle with 1 tblsp of flaky sea salt. Turn gently with your hands and leave for 10 minutes. Rinse well and place in a sterilised jar. Whisk together 70ml white wine vinegar, 50g golden caster sugar and 2 tblsp chopped fresh Dill. Pour over the cucumber, shake, seal and refrigerate. Ready in 3 hours.
SIMPLE PICKLES TURN AN EVERYDAY SNACK INTO SOMETHING SENSATIONAL!
Looks wonderful and so fresh.
sounds great. Have a fabulous Friday as well!
I must try this with smoked salmon, Karen. Smoked salmon is one of my favorite things, and this sounds delicious!
Thank you Cynthia, it is so easy to make. And it makes a lunhctime sandwich so divine! Today I had my own leek and potato soup with a smoked salmon and cucumber pickle sandwich. So simple, but so perfect!
I’m not a big fan of pickled anything but I can’t believe how beautiful, and easy, you make this look and sound! Your photo really captures the freshness!
It is hardly like a pickle at all. I am so greedy with it and when I have a jar in the fridge I eat it for my lunch every day!
Do you peel the cucumber before raking with the tines of the fork? Sometimes I peel in long thin rows leaving the skin on for color and texture then use the fork tines down the peeled section for interest and to bring out the sweetness. Yes, it is very refreshing! Thank you for your recipe!
Hi there, no, I did not remove the peel. I am glad that you are a lover of Cucumber.
I loved your family pictures!
Pickles and BBQs = 😀 this is one to remember .. thank you 🙂
Oh, thank you so much. I hope you try it. Have a great weekend. The weather here has been terrible so far, so I hope it is kinder to you.
