Cucumber Salad

I rarely ever order salad in a restaurant. I'm not fond of iceberg lettuce and goopy dressings. At home on the other hand, I often make this simple and refresing cucumber salad, especially in the summer time.
  • ca 1 pound cucumber
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 4 tbs vinegar
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Peel the cucumbers and slice them very thing. Put them in a bowl and sprinkle on the salt, mix it in. Let it sit in the fridge for half an hour. When time is up, in a bowl mix water, vinegar and sugar till the sugar is dissolved. Adjust water/vinegar ratio to taste. Gently squeeze the liquid out of the sliced cucumber and add them to the water mix. Done. Acceptable additions are: thinly sliced shallots, green onions or purple onions.
