Sweet and Spicy Cucumber Slices

Sweet and Spicy Cucumber Slices
Cucumbers Tossed With Salt
Cucumbers are plentiful in our garden.  I've been putting them in salads, pickling them, making cucmber salads, etc.  I found this recipe on the Blog "Our Best Bites" for sweet and spicy cucumber slices.  They sounded wonderful.  Sweet and spicy -  what  great flavor combinations.  The recipe is very simple to make.  You slice cucumbers very thin, place them in a colander sitting in a bowl.  Sprinkle the cucumber slices with koshr salt and toss.  Put the sliced cucumberrs in the fridge for about 1 hour.  While the cucumbers are chillin - you make the marinade.  Heat together, rice vinegar - you can use regular vinegar, water, sugar, and red pepper flakes.  Reduce until the mixture is approximately 1/3 cup.  Remove from heat and add some minced red onion.  Let marinade cool.  Add cucumbers to the marinade, toss and enjoy.  If you wish you can refrigerate them until they are well chilled.
These cucumbers are  fantastic.  I loved them.  The flavors were wonderful  and very tasty - sweet with a hint of spiciness.  You can find the recipe here.
