Cucumber, Zucchini & Dill Salad

A few years back I was on a two weeks vacation with my family. We took a long road trip that included Budapest – Hungary, Baden (near Vienna) – Austria and Cluj – Romania. The Theme for our vacation was ‘sports and spa’. We had a lot of fun and we did get to relax properly.

The entire vacation was great, except for one thing: the food!

At the time I was vegetarian. 🙂 

Let me tell you: it was crazy difficult as a vegetarian to find nutritious food during this long road trip, especially when traveling to countries in which goulash and schnitzel are raised to the rank of art.

I am sure there are fantastic great places where you can find good and fresh vegetarian foods, but this time I was not my lucky time. Because of this, I came to crave a fresh, crispy salad. 

So, on the first day back home I prepared this green, delicious cucumber and dill salad.


  • 2 cucumbers, thin sliced
  • 1 small zucchini, thin sliced
  • 1/2 bunch fresh chopped dill 
  • 1 teaspoon hulled hemp seeds
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 pinch pink Himalayan salt 


I mixed everything in a bowl and TA-DAAA: quick, tasty, fresh, and easy to make salad, great for warm summer days and not only!
