Cut cucumbers into the thinnest possible slices using a mandolin or sharp knife Arrange the slices evenly in a bowl.
Whisk together the white vinegar, sugar, salt, pepper and dill (or parsley)
Pour the mix over the cucumbers and cover the bowl with cling film. Place a plate with a weight over the cucumbers (a tin of tomatoes for example) to squeeze out the liquid.
Chill for 1 hour. Pour out the excess liquid.
Decorate with chopped dill or parsley. Enjoy as a side dish with salmon dishes or with pickled herring served with fresh boiled potatoes.
The quick pickled cucumber is also nice served with cold-cuts, on cream cheese or as a side with a salad.
