Cucumbers: Too many to count slaw

 Ingredients

  • 1 Large Cucumber Peeled and Sliced Thin/Mandolin Preferred
  • Kosher Salt
  • 1 Small onion diced
  • 3 TBS. Red or Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1 TBS. Sugar
  • Pepper
  • Fresh or Dried Dill to Taste

Directions

Peel and slice your cucumber thinly either by knife or by mandolin. Sprinkle generously with salt. Place in a large bowl. Take a plate or another bowl and place it on top of the cucumbers in your bowl. Top with a large can or object to compress cucumbers. This will help to extract the water out of the cucumbers. Place in refrigerator for about 2 hours. RINSE!!! In a colander to remove the salt. Do this until most of the salt is gone. Let drain.

Put cucumbers back in the large bowl. Mix together the onion, vinegar, sugar and pour over cucumbers. Add onion and dill. Stir gently. Place in refrigerator for and additional hour. Season to taste.

This will last in your refrigerator for about a week. Double or triple the recipe, place in plastic containers for gifts to family and friends. Sure beats canning.

Can be used as a healthy alternative to salad dressing. ENJOY
