This is a zippy way to use cucumbers all
year but especially in the summer when
the garden is giving you plenty of them.
Even though we are in a heat wave and
drought we finally got our first cucumber
fresh from the garden today.
Slice the cucumber very thin ~ I use a mandoline.
In a container with a tight fitting lid, combine:
2 tbls. cider vinegar
1 tsp. sugar
1/2 teas. salt
1/2 teas. crushed red pepper
Stir to combine. Add cucumbers, shake and chill.
I use this as a side dish, I place sliced grilled
chicken over the top, I've even eaten them as a
snack ~ spicy & healthy. Check back tomorrow
for another recipe that uses these cucs.
