Spring has SPRUNG and so have spring flavors!
I have a slight obsession with cucumbers.
One of my favorite spring/summer treats is cucumber salad.
I wanted to make some for a side dish.
So I started experimenting.
It takes some time in the fridge to make but it is WAY worth it.
Crisp Cucumber Salad
1 large cucumber sliced
1/2 red onion sliced
3 TBS salt
1/2 c of sugar
1/2 c of white vinegar
2 TBS Cilantro chopped
1/2 tbs cracked black pepper
In a bowl coat sliced cucumbers and onions in salt.
Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
After 2 hours rinse off the salt and return veggies to the bowl.
In a separate bowl combine sugar and vinegar.
Pour vinegar/sugar mixture over the veggies. Toss in cilantro and pepper.
Cover and refrigerate for 20 minutes.
