The Prince of Egypt: Cucumber Salad
This cucumber salad has a nice balance of sweet and tart.
- 2 Cucumbers
- 1 medium Onion
- 2 T Salt
- 1 T Sugar
- 1 C White Vinegar
Wash the cucumbers and slice them thin.
Here you can see I got about 3 C of cucumbers from two cucumbers.
Peel a medium onion, and cut it into thin slices. Cut the slices in half.
Here you can see the slices are so thin you can see my fingers through them.
Put the cukes into a bowl.
Sprinkle on 1 T salt.
Toss the salt with the cukes. Let them stand for an hour.
Now squeeze the cukes, forcing the water from them.
Now, run the cukes under cool water to rinse them off. Drain the water.
Here are my cukes rinsed and squeezed.
Add the onion.
Add enough white vinegar to cover. Sprinkle on 1 T Sugar. Stir. Chill for at least 30 minutes.
