 2 cucumbers, thinly sliced
 2 tbsp chopped fresh dill

First, quickly pickle the onion. To do this, add the Colavita vinegar and salt to a small saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium heat.


Once simmering, add in the minced red onion or shallot and remove from the heat. Let the onion steep and cool in the vinegar for 10-15 minutes.


In a large serving bowl combine the cucumbers, feta and pistachios.


Pour the onion and vinegar mixture over the top of the salad.


Drizzle with about 2 tbsp of Colavita olive oil and sprinkle with freshly ground black pepper and a pinch of salt.


Toss everything together until well coated. Garnish with fresh dill.
