You know those ever popular potato peelers, the ones I seem to be constantly losing lol. Generously make strips of cucumber and put in a glass jug. It looks quite pretty. Fill with cold water and chill. A glass jug is best as it does look cool and refreshing. Indeed cool as a cucumber. Add ice. This is lovely with dinner or another cold drink.
Heres one you might like. Not original though.
Dutch cucumber salad. I cucumber peel and then thinly slice ..paper thin. Use a mandolin. Lol i think I have the wrong word. You know those utensils that slice vegies really thin. Dont cut our finger.
Put in bowl and generously sprinkle with sugar.
Add slurp of olive oil
Must be white vinegar. Chill and serve,
thankyou Tiv for providing this recipe – I shall keep it in mind when I purchase my next cucumber. I have had such a vegetable slicer but it became vicious on too many occasions so it went to ??? I have a cheese slicer so that might be a goer!!
I just did pickled cucumber , Wow wee was it ever hot, well for me that is, I think too much chilli powder mixed in, I have drained off all the liquid and poured in just plain apple cider vinegar its still too hot , have rinsed the cucumber slices, [ I am surprised they are still in one piece] any suggestions on how to dilute the hot hot or do I throw them out and start again,?
