Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Peel and thinly slice cucumbers.
  2. Place in a colander, sprinkle with coarse salt. Drain for one hour.
  3. Mix juice, oil and sugar (Dave use a stick blender, I whisk by hand or shake in a container big enough to then add the cukes).
  4. Layer cucumbers and basil in a sealable container (like the one I shook the dressing in).
  5. Pour lime vinaigrette over the cucumbers.
  6. Chill 2-4 hours, occasionally shaking container to mix juices.
