Dill Pickle Cucumber Salad

Dill Pickle Cucumber Salad by Ng @ Whats for Dinner? I know posted a recipe for German Cucumber and Radish Salad exactly one month ago today but its summer and I love both cucumbers and salad. Before moving to Ireland I hated cucumbers turns out I just disliked the seeds and thick skins of American cucumbers because English cucumber are great.

Homegrown Cucumbers in my conservatory by Ng @ Whats for Dinner?We have picked 5 large cucumbers in the last week. All week we have been living off cream cheese and cucumber sandwiches. I made this Dill Pickle Cucumber Salad to go with hamburgers and no one even bothered to open the jar of dills on the table.
