How to Make Southern Summer Cucumber Salad
- Prepare all veggies as above. Mix all together in a large lidded plastic or otherwise container.
- Mix vinegar, sugar, and water together. Stir until sugar is completely dissolved, or allow to sit and stir occasionally until sugar is dissolved.
- Pour the liquid over your veggies and mix well. Add finely minced dill to the mixture and stir lightly if you choose to use the dill. ( I love dill and use it in mine, but not everyone likes dill as much as I do ) ;)
- Refrigerate covered for at least 3 hours, stirring occasionally, to allow the flavors to mix and the veggies to marinate. When ready, serve using a slotted spoon, and sprinkle black pepper on top per individual taste. So fresh, so cool, YUM!
