Sweet-and-Sour Cucumber Salad offers up a refreshing summer side—especially to dishes that tend to be on the spicy side.

How to Make It

Whisk together vinegar, sugar, Dijon mustard, salt, and pepper in a bowl. Add canola oil in a slow, steady stream, whisking constantly until well blended. Add cucumber, shallots, and cilantro. Toss to coat. Cover and chill 15 minutes.
