Cucumber onion vinegar salad is a light, refreshing summer side dish. This salad is one of my favorite ways to incorporate vegetables as a healthy crunchy snack with fresh farmer’s market cucumbers.

 

Anyone else get bored of the same veggie snacks? Add a little vinegar and dill, and voila you’ve got a jazzed up healthy snack without having to overdo it with the ranch dip. If you have cucumbers and zucchinis give this cucumber onion vinegar salad recipe a try.

Fresh dill has been one of my newest discoveries at the market. There is so much you can do with fresh herbs.
