Cucumber Salad

This recipe comes from Dad Cooks up a Party, a fun cookbook.

2 cucumbers, rinsed and thinly sliced [the book recommended seedless cucumbers, which I ignored]
1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
1/4 cup white wine vinegar
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
1 teaspoon salt

Mix everything together. Chill for at least a couple of hours.
After a couple of days the color will begin to seep out of the red onion and into the liquid. Doesn't change the taste, just the presentation.

Quick to make, and tasty. And perfect for a summer picnic.
