Chilled Cucumber Salad


1 European cucumber, thinly sliced
1 small red onion, peeled, halved and thinly sliced
1 garlic clove, smashed
4 sprigs fresh dill
1 1/2 cups seasoned rice vinegar

Toss the cucumber, onion, garlic and dill together in a medium glass bowl.
Pour the vinegar over the cucumber mixture. The cucumber slices should be submerged in the vinegar; if they aren't, you can weigh them down with a second bowl.
Transfer the bowl to the refrigerator and marinate until good flavor develops, at least 1 1/2 hours. (The longer you let the salad marinate, the more intense the flavor will be.)

Serve as a main dish or side dish.

The marinated cucumbers will keep, covered and refrigerated, for up to a week and a half.
