Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon coarse sea salt
  • 3 to 4 cucumbers, peeled and thinly sliced
  • ½ cup white wine vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground white pepper
  • cup water

    Method

    Sprinkle half the salt in the bottom of a large deep dish or bowl. Place the cucumber slices in the dish. Sprinkle with the rest of the salt. Place another dish or bowl on top of the cucumbers, hold them tightly together, and shake well to extract some water.

    Combine the vinegar, sugar, and white pepper in a bowl. Add cup water. Pour the mixture over the cucumbers and let stand for an hour before serving.
