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.
