Another recipe from Holland. There was only one resturant near "Drie Bergen" that made this and my Dad use to drive for miles to get some. Tastes a lot like the Japanese cucumber salad. Wonder where they got it? Or is it the other way around.
- Wash and peel cucumbers.
- Slice or cut in rounds as thin as possible cukes & onions.
- Place in bowl and cover with vinegar.
- Add 3-5 heaping tablespoons of sugar, Mix well.
- Chill and serve.
- This is better if you let it sit in the fridge covered overnight. Actually. if allowed to mellow for 2 or 3 days -- in a tightly sealed jar in the refrigerator -- JAR TURNED UPSIDE DOWN 1 day & turned right side up the next.
Delicious. For a variation, I used two English cucumbers instead of 3 regular cucumbers, and seasoned rice vinegar.
I added sliced sweet onions and relived a dish from my grandmother's table. Truly wonderful!
Very refreshing, though I just might tone down the sugar a tad next time. Great on sandwiches!
