#3554 - Sour Cucumber Salad

(by Shirley McNevich)

1 large cucumber
1 tsp. salt
2 TBSP white sugar
white vinegar
fresh ground black pepper

Peel the cucumber, then use a box grater to slice it into thin slices. Place the cucumber slices in a bowl and sprinkle the salt all over the top. Let the cucumbers stand for 30 minutes, then drain off any liquid. Sprinkle the white sugar over the cucumber slices--stir to mix. Add just enough white vinegar so cucumber are moistened--stir well. Grind some black pepper over the top, then let the cucumbers sit for a few minutes before stirring and serving. Optional: if you don't like such a strong vinegar flavor, when adding the vinegar add half vinegar and half water instead of all vinegar.
