Roasted Bell Pepper and Cucumber Dill Salad Recipe

Sometimes the simplest things make the most delicious dish. My husband Lulu planted Persian cucumbers this year and lately he's been harvesting 2-3 cucumbers a day. I love the flavor of Persian cucumbers and have had a lot of fun coming up with simple recipes that showcase them.

Salads are a great way to enjoy cucumbers and this recipe is no exception. Since cucumbers have a high water content, I salted them to draw out moisture for a crisp result. I paired them with roasted red bell peppers and seasoned the salad with a simple lemon and extra-virgin olive oil vinaigrette. I also sprinkled a few toasted pine nuts for texture and added fresh dill because this herb marries superbly with the vegetable.

This salad will be a hit at any picnic, pool party or barbecue. It tastes like summer!
