Ingredients

    1-1/2 lbs cucumber (about 3 medium), peeled, halved lengthwise & thinly sliced
    2 tsp kosher salt
    1/2 c rice vinegar, seasoned or regular
    1/2 c water
    3 Tbs sugar*
    1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
    2 Tbs minced red onion

    *Iíve even made this with Splenda and they turned out great!

Directions

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.
