My mom made this side dish many times while I was growing up. She never had a recipe for them, she just threw together a little bit of this and a little bit of that until the dish tasted right. Here I think I have the measurements right - you can adjust the amounts to suit your taste. The leftover vinaigrette is good to put on salad, too.
1 small English cucumber (regular cukes work well too, I just prefer ones without seeds)
2 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp. white vinegar
1/2 tsp. sugar
1/8 tsp. black pepper
pinch of salt
1/4 - 1/2 tsp. dill, if desired
Wash and thinly slice the cucumber and place in a shallow bowl. Whisk together the remaining ingredients. Adjust marinade to taste and pour over the cucumbers. Marinate at least 30 minutes, turning occasionally. Serve chilled.
