Garlic Dill Cucumbers

These Garlic Dill Cucumbers are on my menu as long as fresh cucumbers are in season. Crisp, cool and crunchy, they are a great side dish to just about any meal and have just the right amount of dill and garlic to make them taste amazing. Plus, they are a cinch to make.

If you have even a smidge of Slavic heritage, you don’t need an introduction to this classic garden favorite. I’ll bet every Slavic family makes these cucumbers in the summertime. The combination of the dill and garlic give it that iconic flavor.

I personally don’t love using lots of fresh garlic, where it is completely overpowering. The method I use in this recipe is the perfect solution – instead of assaulting the cucumbers with lots of minced raw garlic, I instead add the cloves of garlic that I first gently crush with my knife. The garlic gives a very mild kiss to the cucumbers, with just the right touch of aromatic flavor. With the addition of fresh dill, the cucumbers are SO, SO good.
