you must try these.......so simple...so good.... 1 cucumber 1 T. salt 1 T. sugar 1/4 c. vinegar 2 T. water Dash pepper Peel 1 medium sized-cucumber. Thinly score lengthwise with the tines of a fork. Slice thin into a flat bowl. Sprinkle with salt; cover with a second bowl of the same shape and place a heavy object on top. Let stand several hours. Drain off juice; pour over cucumber a mixture of the vinegar, water, sugar and dash pepper. These are also really good when you serve them with curry.
