This will be a perfect thing to keep in the fridge to pull out for a quick BBQ summer dinner. Yum Yum!! And I liked it as a nice crisp snack.
Sweet and Spicy Cucumber Slices
3 medium cucumbers, peeled and sliced
2 tsp kosher salt
1/2 cup rice vinegar
1/2 cup water
3 Tbsp sugar
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
2 Tbsp minced red onion
1. Place cucumber slices in a colander sitting over a bowl and sprinkle with salt. Toss to coat. Let sit for 1 hour refrigerated. Toss the cukes a few times while they drain. While the cukes are draining, prepare the marinade.
2. Combine the vinegar, water, sugar, and red pepper flakes in a small sauce pan. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and cook until it reduces to 1/3 cup (about 10 minutes). Remove from heat and add onion. Let cool to room temp.
3. When the cukes are done resting and draining, pat them dry with a paper towel and then combine them with the marinade. Refrigerate until well chilled.
