- 1 English cucumber
- Coarse salt
- 2 tablespoons distilled white vinegar
- 1/2 teaspoon granulated sugar
- Pinch of freshly ground pepper
- 3 tablespoons coarsely chopped dill
Slice cucumbers paper thin using the thinnest setting on a mandoline. Place cucumber slices in a colander set over a bowl and sprinkle with 1 teaspoon salt. Toss to combine; transfer to refrigerator and let drain for at least 30 minutes or up to 3 hours.
Meanwhile, combine 1/3 cup water, vinegar, sugar, 1/8 teaspoon salt, and pepper in a small bowl; set aside.
Remove cucumbers from refrigerator and squeeze cucumbers to extract as much liquid as possible. Place cucumbers in a serving bowl and toss with reserved vinegar mixture and dill; serve.
