These are fairly easy to make and my husband and I really liked them. They are a great side dish for a yummy summer meal. We got some cucumbers from the Farmers Market and they were fresh and crisp. They do have a little bit of heat. Some bites there seemed to be a little more red pepper than others ; ). Hope you enjoy them! This is such a better way to use up cucumbers than making pickles! ; ) I hate pickles!
3-4 medium cucumbers, peeled, halved lengthwise, and thinly sliced
1 tsp kosher salt (recipe called for 2 t. and it was a little too salty)
1/2 cup rice vinegar, seasoned or regular
1/2 cup water
3 T. sugar
1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes
2 T. minced red onion
Combine vinegar, water, sugar, and red pepper in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat a little and cook until reduced to 1/3 cup (about 10 minutes). Remove from heat and add onion. Let mixture cool to room temperature.
