Crispy Cucumbers

We were in Charlotte a couple of weekends ago and my aunt served these wonderful cucumbers with dinner.  I had to ask for the recipe.  I made a batch at home and they were gone in 1 evening – Stella gobbled them up like most kids eat candy.  These are so good, so easy and just deliciously wonderful!  They will stay crisp for at least 2 days – if they last that long in your fridge!

2 cucumbers
1 onion
1 tsp sea salt
2 tsp sugar
2+ Tbl white rice vinegar
Celery seeds

1. Slice the cucumbers thin, leaving the skin on.  I use a knife but you could use a mandolin or the slicing attachment for your Cuisinart.

2. Thinly slice the onions.

3. Layer the onions and cucumbers in a bowl.

4. Combine the vinegar, sugar and salt – mixing to dissolve. Pour over the cucumbers.

5. Mix the cucumbers and then generously sprinkle with celery seeds.

6. Cover and refrigerate overnight or you can make in the morning to have with dinner that night.

Serve and watch them disappear!

    I will vouch for these as we enjoyed them on my last visit — and yes, Stella loved them, even reached right in the bowl for a few more, just like candy!!
    Glad to have such a simple and refreshing recipe!

      We go thru these so fast that I just leave the brine in the bowl and then add more cucumbers and onions. When the brine looks low I make another batch and just add in…

    I finally purchased rice wine vinegar and made a huge batch. Can’t wait to try them tomorrow! Thanks for the recipe.

    Thanks so much for the recipe. I didn’t have Rice Wine Vinegar and used White Wine Vinegar (it at least sounded similar) and still delicious.
