Mr. Real Food loves cucumber salad! So when I saw the cucumbers in my co-op basket, I knew I would be making cucumber salad this week. He has a special recipe that he uses but it is a little sour for my taste. This is a sweeter version. He said he prefers his version (even though he ate an entire bowl of it) but I loved this sweetness of this recipe. I guess we’ll have to agree to disagree on this one!
Sweet Cucumber Salad
3 large cucumbers, sliced thinly
1 small onion, sliced thinly
1 tomato, chopped
1 cup white balsamic vinegar
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup coconut palm sugar
1 tablespoon dill (or to taste)
Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and stir well. Refrigerate at least an hour to cucumbers to marinate. Serve cold or at room temperature.
