Sweet and Spicy Cucumber Slices

Sweet and Spicy Cucumber Slices

  • Yield: 1 serving


  • 1.5 pound(s) cucumber peeled, halved, thinly sliced
  • 2 teaspoon(s) kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup(s) rice vinegar
  • 1/2 cup(s) water
  • 3 tablespoon(s) sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon(s) red pepper flakes
  • 2 tablespoon(s) Minced red onion


Place cucumber slices in a colander sitting over a bowl, sprinkle with salt and toss well. Let sit for 1 hour refrigerated. Toss the cukes a few times while they drain as well. While cucumber slices are draining, prepare marinade below.

Combine vinegar, water, sugar and red pepper in a small saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cook until reduced to a 1/3 cup (about 10 minutes). If for some reason you boil for too long, just add a little water until you have 1/3 C. Remove reduction from heat and add onion. Let mixture cool to room temp.

When cucumbers are done resting, pat them dry with a few paper towels and then combine with the vinegar reduction. This can be served immediately, but for best results refrigerate until well chilled.
