  • 2 pounds English or pickling cucumbers, halved and diagonally cut into 1/8-inch-thick slices

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Print

    Prep: 6 minutes; Chill: 30 minutes. Asian cooks often make a simple sweet-and-sour pickle by tossing cucumbers in vinegar and sugar. I like to add a little pickled ginger for unexpected flavor.

  • Yield: 6 servings (serving size: 1 cup)
