  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh dill, plus more for garnish
  • 2 tsp chopped fresh chives, plus more for garnish
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper


Step 1

To start, thinly slice your cucumber using a mandolin for uniform size, then cut your sweet onion thinly worth 3/4 cup. Add the sliced cucumber and sweet onion to a colander, add a little bit of salt, toss, and let them sit for one hour. (Toss in between to draw as much water as you can.) After this, pat them dry with a paper towel.
