A Show Where Cucumber Is the Star
Pick up a loaf of crusty bread to soak up this salad's sweet, puckery dressing. Halve a cucumber lengthwise and then cut each half into half-moon-shaped slices. Transfer to a bowl and add a splash of red wine vinegar, a spoonful of mayonnaise or sour cream and a sprinkling of sugar. Let it sit in the fridge for at least 20 minutes but up to two hours; when ready to eat, add chopped dill, wedges of tomato and slices of red onion.
