Crisp, simple, tasty cucumber salad recipe. So simple to start with this recipe, and then add in your favourite flavours.
2 English cucumbers
1 small red onion
1½ Tbsp (15 mL) course salt
4 Tsp (20 mL) white wine or sherry vinegar
1 tsp (5 mL) sugar
Slice the cucumber lengthwise and scrape out the seeds. Use a vegetable peeler to make cucumber strips. Thinly slice the onion.
In a colander, toss the cucumber and onion with the salt and let sit to drain for about 20 minutes. Press as much liquid out of the vegetables as possible and rinse well with cold water.
In a medium bowl combine the vinegar and sugar and stir well. Add the cucumber mixture and toss to coat. Refrigerate for one hour before serving.
