ingredients

directions

  • Thinly slice cucumbers. I use a mandoline for perfect thin cuts.
  • Place cucumber in a large bowl adding salt through out the cucumbers.
  • Place a plate over the cucumbers as to add weight ( i usually put my olive oil can on top of the plate for added pressure). This step is to withdraw as much extra water as possible. Cover for 1 hours.
  • Mix vinegars, sugar and dill, taste, making adjustments for that tangy taste.
  • Empty excess water from cucumbers and add shallots and vinegar dressing.
  • Ideally let sit for another hour, but its hard to resist for that long.

    Hard to beat this combination! I used red onion instead of the shallots, but it tasted great anyway.
