Cucumber Salad

This salad is prepared so quickly and is so very refreshing.  It’s delicate flavor comes from the simplicity of the ingredients.  Using a cheese plane or other slicer, shave the cucumber (I prefer the ‘seedless’ type) down the sides to remove most but not all of the rind.  Then shave the entire cucumber in thin slices into a bow.  Sprinkle with approx. 1 – 1 1/2 tbsp. sugar.  Season with salt and pepper and pour over about 1/4 – 1/3 cup red wine vinegar.  Mix lightly. Sprinkle with some fresh dill if desired.  Refrigerate until ready to serve.
