It’s best to use cucumbers with thin skins and small or no seeds. Japanese, Persian or mini cukes work really well, as do Kirbys. If your cukes have tough, thick skins, you can peel half of the skin off in long alternating stripes or peel them completely. If your cukes have large seeds, halve the cukes lengthwise and scrape the seeds out before slicing them.
Dill is such a delicate-looking herb that is surprising that it packs such a wallop of flavor. A little certainly goes a long way. No matter how much or little you buy, you’re bound to have a decent amount left over. Some ways to use it up are: compound butter; yogurt dressings, dips, or soups; savory crepes or pancakes; potato salad; pickles; frittatas and omelets; chicken soup. Almost anyplace you’d use an herb is a candidate.
