SCD Dill Marinated Cucumbers

Dill Cucumbers

I wanted a little taste of summer the other day and these cucumbers hit the spot. They’re quick, simple, and tangy with a crisp crunch. The recipe is one that’s been kicking around for decades but traditionally uses sugar. It is easily adapted to paleo and SCD diets by substituting honey instead.

Dill Cucumbers

  • 2-3 cucumbers
  • 1/2 cup white vinegar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon dried dill (2 if using fresh)
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • pepper to taste
  1. Peel the cucumbers and cut into 1/4-inch slices.
  2. Combine the remaining ingredients, mixing well for the honey.
  3. Add the cucumber slices.
  4. Cover and chill in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours.
  5. Remove from fridge and serve. Serves 4.

When I started peeling the cucumbers I discovered our vegetable peeler had somehow broken, but only on one side. (I live with two boys; inevitably, some household items meet with unsavory fates.) It was still somewhat usable left-handed. Though I can’t recommend this method, it got the job done. I know what I’m shopping for this weekend.
