Sweet and Sour Easy Cucumber Salad Recipe

A few weeks ago I was out at a seafood restaurant and one of the choices for side dishes was a cucumber salad. It was thin slices of cucumber, much thinner than the ones here but my mandolin wouldn’t cut them that thin so I went with this instead. My friend who was with me that day had the cucumber salad as a side to. It just so happened she came over for dinner the night I made these. We both decided we liked the salad better this way even though we loved the restaurants dish. I added the dill to it as I had just gone and picked a bunch of fresh herbs.
