Pressed Cucumber Salad

Here is a cooling, cleansing salad using dill and cucumber.
Dill is good at detoxifying the gastrointestinal tract and soothing for a sensitive stomach. Cucumber clears heat and cools the body, which is perfect for either during or after a hot spell of weather.

Ingredients:

  • Cucumbers, sliced paper thin
  • 1/2 tsp salt in 1 cup water
  • Pinch of dill

Method:

  1. Soak cucumbers in brine for 30 minutes
  2. Drain and dry slightly by pressing slices between paper towels
  3. Sprinkle with dill and serve
