Makes 4 servings.

Less-Wet Cucumbers

Trim the cucumbers and cut into 0.5-inch thick pieces. Place in a small bowl. Sprinkle with salt and toss well to coat. Allow to sit at room temperature for 30 minutes. Rinse off salt mixture and pat dry.


Mix all ingredients in a 3.5 cup glass airtight container. Once the cucumbers are done getting ’less wet’, add them to the container and seal it. Shake to coat the cucumbers. Refrigerate overnight. Shake occassionally, if convenient. Transfer cucumbers to a plate and serve cold.

A single batch of marinade may be reused to marinate several batches of cucumbers.
