  1. 1 Slice the cucumber in half lengthways and scoop out the seeds.
  2. 2 Slice the 2 halves into thin half moons, about the thickness of a pound coin.
  3. 3 Toss the cucumber in the salt and put in a sieve or colander.
  4. 4 Place a small plate on top, weigh it down with a tin and leave for at least 30 minutes to draw out moisture from the cucumber.

  7. 7 Rinse the cucumber and pat dry with a clean tea towel.
  8. 8 Toss with the pickling liquid and fresh dill, to taste.
