Marinated Vinegar Cukes (a healthy snack)

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!

2 cucumbers
1 tsp salt (more or less to taste)
