Swedish Cucumber Salad



  • 7 large unpeeled cucumbers
  • 6 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
  • 1-2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill (or 1 teaspoon dried dill weed)
  • 3/4 cup white or apple cider vinegar
  • 1 small onion, thinly sliced


  1. Score cucumbers by running the tines of a fork down the sides. Slice very thin; place them, along with the onions, in a deep bowl. Press down on the cucumbers with the palms of your hands to release some of the juices.
  2. Sprinkle with sugar, parsley and dill; toss and pour vinegar over.
  3. Let sit at room temperature for 30 minutes, then press again. Juice should cover cucumbers.
  4. Cover and chill well before serving.

Serves 4-6
