  • 1 large English cucumber
  • 1/2 tsp pink Himalayan salt
  • 1/2 tsp honey — optional
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh dill


  1. In a bowl combine the salt, olive oil and apple cider vinegar. You can also add about 1/2 teaspoon of honey to the dressing, if you'd like.
  2. Wash your cucumber and peel (if desired, peeling the cucumber is not mandatory).
  3. Slice into very thin slices, using a sharp knife. You can use a mandolin slicer, but  I personally like to slice cucumbers with a knife.
  4. Place cucumbers in a colander over a bowl.
  5. Sprinkle some salt over the cucumbers and let it sit over them for 5 minutes.
  6. Next dry the slices between two paper towels. This is an important step so that your cucumbers don't get soggy.ucumbers
  7. Place cucumbers in a bowl.
  8. Season with salt, olive oil and apple cider vinegar. Add the dill and stir to combine.
