Sweet-and-Sour Cucumbers

I served this on the side of the tofu dish, and it was really good! I wanted to use fresh dill from my garden, but some critters got into the plant and have deterred me from ever growing it again. So I used dried. This was really easy and good - next time I make a similar dish, I'm going to use honey instead of sugar and add some onions and carrots to it. I think that would really knock it out of the park.
