* 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
* 1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
* 1 1/2 teaspoons sugar
* 1 tablespoon mild olive oil

whisk together vinegar, mustard, salt, and sugar in a bowl, then add oil in a slow stream, whisking.

halve cucumber lengthwise and remove seeds with a small spoon, then cut halves crosswise into 1/8-inch-thick slices.
