When a small packet of heirloom cucumber seeds turns into this, you need more cucumber ideas. I have quite a few Asian and Greek inspired recipes so I needed something to go with other foods. This paired well with pasta.
This is best made a few hours before serving. Start with this basic recipe and then see how it tastes. I usually end up adding a little more vinegar or sugar. You can also add chopped fresh dill or red pepper flakes for a different take. Or more garlic.
- 4 cucumbers, skins removed and seeds scooped out, thinly sliced
- 6 tablespoons white wine vinegar
- 2 tablespoons good tasting olive oil
- 2 teaspoons sugar
- 1 garlic clove, crushed or put through a garlic press
- salt to taste
