Cucumber salad

One of my favorite parts about summertime is all the fresh produce.  I love cucumber salads, there is something so refreshing about them.  I have dill growing like crazy so I wanted to make a cucumber salad with lots of dill.  Here is what I came up with, it was so good.

Cucumber Dill Salad

2                      Cucumbers sliced very thin
1                      Red Onion Sliced very thin
1                      Red bell pepper sliced
1                      Yellow Bell pepper sliced
2 Tbsp               Fresh dill Chopped
½ Cup               White wine vinegar
3 Tbsp               Sugar
1. Slice Cucumbers, onion, and bell peppers. Add Chopped dill.
2. In a small bowl whisk together vinegar, sugar and pepper until the sugar is dissolved. Pour over the vegetables and toss.
3. It is great served immediately or even better if you let it sit for a while.
