I used some pickling cucumbers that we bought from a local produce stand, and some fresh dill from our garden to make a salt & vinegar cucumber salad. It has only four ingredients but lots of flavor.
The entire batch is only 4 Weight Watchers Plus points!
I think this is a good alternative to salt & vinegar chips since it has the tanginess of salt & vinegar and the crunch of the cucumbers, but hardly any fat.
WHAT YOU NEED:
- 2 cucumbers, washed & sliced (I used 8 pickling cucumbers since they are smaller)
- 1/3 c. white vinegar
- 1/3 c. water
- 1 Tbs. Kosher salt
- 1 tsp. sugar
- 1/2 Tbs. fresh dillweed
WHAT YOU DO:
In a medium-sized bowl, mix together vinegar, water, salt and sugar. Add cucumber slices, then top with dill, and stir gently to combine. Refrigerate for a few hours until chilled.

UPDATE: I made this recipe using English cucumbers and instead of slicing them into coin shapes, I used a GEFU Spirelli spiral cutter tool. Here’s what it looked like…
