Gillis Cucumber Salad

Learned this recipe from my dad a long time ago  after many a hot summer day spent snacking on this. Great for potlucks, picnics, or to accompany anything cooked on the barbecue.

Prep Time: ~70 minutes, including time chilling in the fridge.
Serves 6


  • 1-2 large cucumbers, peeled if desired, finely sliced.
  • Other raw vegetables (sliced red peppers and tomatoes are great).
  • 1 tbsp olive oil.
  • 1-2 tbsp vinegar (balsamic or apple cider work well).
  • Salt and pepper, to taste.

Cooking Instructions:

Toss everything in a bowl, stir well. Cover and refrigerate for at least an hour to let the flavours mingle. Serve slightly cooler than room temperature.
