Dill Cucumber Salad

Dill Cucumber Salad

A cool, refreshing side dish. Inspired by these two recipes, but mostly a notional recipe.

1 large English cucumber, sliced on a mandolin to 1/8" thick
1/2 small red onion, also sliced on a mandolin to 1/8" thick
~1 Tbsp kosher salt
~2 Tbsp sugar
~2/3 cup mix of your favorite vinegars (I used mostly white vinegar + cider vinegar + red wine vinegar)
1/4 cup dill, chopped
