4 cucumbers/dills thinly sliced (use a mandolin for perfect slices)
1 red or white Onion-thinly sliced (optional)
1 cup / 240 ml white vinegar
1/2 cup / 120 ml water
3/4 cup / 150 g white sugar
sea salt


1. Place the cucumbers in a colander after slicing and sprinkle with salt and let them drain. Flip the colander once in a while and continue to let drain for at least an hour. Then rinse with cold water, and drain.
Transfer to paper towel and pat dry, then put in a container with a lid, together with the onions.

2. Mix together the vinegar, water, and sugar in a pan and bring to a slow boil. Then allow to simmer until clear. Remove from heat and cool.

3. After this mixture is COMPLETELY cool pour over the cucumbers and onions and pop in the fridge.

TIP: This is the BEST done the day before serving…..if serving the same day-do this salad early in the day and allow to marinate.
