Cucumbers with Dill

Sprinkling cucumber slices with salt and letting them stand in a colander draws out excess water so they stay crisp when set on a barbecue buffet. Try this cucumber dill salad alongside any grilled entree. —Taste of Home Test Kitchen

    Easy and tasty. For lower carbs, you can easily replace sugar with sucralose or other non-caloric sweeteners. (Aspartame not recommended.) Keeps well in the refrigerator.
