Ok, so I hate too much food yesterday during the Super Bowl and I need something light for lunch with my lemon water….
This cucumber salad is refreshing and light and crunchy and pretty much perfect.
Tangy, slightly sweet and full of yum. A perfect salad for picnics, barbecues, and large gatherings – just double or triple the recipe! Enjoy and think of summer….
sweet and sour cucumber salad with green onions
1 english cucumber, sliced thinly
1/2 T kosher salt
1/4 c white wine vinegar
2 green onions, sliced thinly
1 1/2 T sugar
freshly ground black pepper
Place cucumber slices in a colander or wire mesh strainer and sprinkle kosher salt over top. Toss well to coat. Let sit 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Meanwhile, mix dressing ingredients in a large bowl, mixing well so that sugar dissolves.
Drain cucumbers and pat dry. Add cucumbers to dressing and toss well. Refrigerate 15 minutes or up to 2 hours. Serve cold.
