Serves: 1 salad
  • one cucumber
  • salt
  • ¼ small red onion (about 25 grams)
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup (about 7 grams)
  • 2 teaspoons white wine vinegar (about 10 ml)
  • 1 to 2 sprigs of fresh dill (or 1 teaspoon freeze-dried dill)
  1. Slice your cucumber in half length wise, and remove the seeds with a spoon. Then slice the cucumber really thin using a sharp knife or a mandolin.
  2. Transfer the cucumber slices to a large colander and sprinkle with a generous amount of salt. Don't worry about using too much, because you'll rinse the cucumbers later anyway.
  3. Finely slice your red onion and add them to the colander as well.
  4. Make your dressing by combining 1 teaspoon maple syrup with 2 teaspoons white wine vinegar and set aside.
  5. Rinse the cucumber and red onion with a generous amount of water and transfer to a bowl or large Tupperware. Mix in the dill and the dressing and let sit for at least 30 minutes. If you're using fresh dill, finely chop the leaves before adding them to the salad.
