ECO Lunch Box Three-in-One #15
I'm actually not quite certain what makes the cucumber salad "Scandinavian." It is essentially a quick fridge pickle--mostly vinegar, salt, sugar, and dill to dress cucumber slices--but maybe that just reflects how Scandinavians like dill. If I make this recipe again, I will sweat the water out of the cucumbers before dressing them; as it sat this got watery and leaked out of my box a little. Fortunately I didn't get any vinegar and dill on my fruit!
This recipe is, incidentally, from the same book as Monday's crazy chicken. Maybe the life lesson is to use commons sense with old recipes--except that sometimes the weird stuff is actually really good!
