Sour Cucumber with Fresh Dill Salad Recipe

Sour Cucumber with Fresh Dill Salad Recipe.  This is half pickle, half salad, and totally delicious served with pumpernickel or other coarse, dark, full flavoured bread, as a light meal or an appetizer. Choose smooth-skinned, smallish cucumbers for this recipe as larger ones tend to be less tender, with tough skins and bitter indigestible seeds. If you can only buy a large cucumber, peel if before slicing.
