This post is for people who LOVE vinegar (like me). If you don't like vinegar, you might as well stop reading right now. I adore the taste of vinegar and recipes with vinegar. I always like a good vinaigrette.
This is a good, healthy snack. Low calorie. No carbs. No fat. Very much like a fresh pickle to satisfy a craving. AND it's simple simple simple.
Wash and peel your cucumbers. I use at least 2.
Place cukes in a bowl. Sprinkle with salt (seasoning salt works well too) and pepper. I like these because you can control the amount of salt to use. Add it to your taste.
Add vinegar. I use Salad Vinegar which is a little less strong than pure vinegar. If you use pure vinegar, use less vinegar and add some water too (about half and half--see below).
You can eat them right away if you like a crispier cuke. Otherwise, refrigerate your cucumbers for at least 2 hours, so they have time to soak it all in.
Enjoy your healthy snack.
P.S. They are yummy on a deli sandwich!
