Jennifer's Week Thirty-One Recipe: Ranch Cucumber Salad

Tonight I found myself left to my own devices for dinner. Normally when this happens I am a very bad girl and get takeout. Tonight I was determined to not do so and I daresay I succeeded. I made up two recipes tonight and this is the first.

Ranch Cucumber Salad

1 cucumber, peeled and sliced thin
1 shallot, diced
About 2 tablespoons Ranch dressing (I did not measure)
2 teaspoons sugar
a splash white vinegar
a healthy sprinkling of dill weed (Again, I did not measure)

Peel and thinly slice the cucumber and place in a colander and sprinkle with salt. Let them think about themselves for a bit before rinsing and draining well. Place the cucumbers, shallot, dressing, vinegar and dill in a bowl and mix well. Place the bowl in the fridge and let the mix ponder for at least a half hour (the longer, the better).

Would I make this again? Well, maybe. The cucumber salad my step-dad used to make is far superior, but this did in a pinch with what I had in the house.

  1. Similar to the recipe I use except white is switched to cider vinager and ranch changes into sour cream
