Expert Tips:

  1. For this salad, use English cucumbers, which have thin skin and do not need to be peeled. Persian cucumbers, which are smaller in diameter, can also be used.

  2. For the most exquisite flavor, use fresh dill.

  3. To make equal and thin slices of cucumber and red onion, use a mandoline. Of course, you can use a knife if you prefer.

  4. Because cucumber becomes watery over time, this recipe is best served immediately. However, you can prepare it 3-4 hours ahead of time and chill it.

  5. If you plan on refrigerating it overnight, season the sliced cucumbers with salt and set them in a colander in a bowl in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to 1 hour. Allow the salt to pull the moisture out. After draining the cucumbers, dump the liquid and continue with the preparation.
