Ingredients

  • 1 Lebanese or English cucumber These ones are Lebanese
  • .5 cup rice vinegar
  • .25 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp salt

Instructions

  • Slice cucumber to desired thickness. I feel 1/8 - 1/4 inch (approx 1/2 cm) is about right for me.
  • Stir together vinegar, salt & sugar until dissolved.
  • Add cucumbers, cover and leave for minimum 30 mins before using.
  • Store in the fridge.

Notes

 

Essential Tools  

  • mandoline - a sharp knife will do the trick
  • measuring jug & spoon
  • airtight container
  • stirring spoon - tblspoon works just fine

Tips/Tricks

  • using a mandoline is quicker and gets even slices BUT if you don't own one then just use a sharp knife
  • if you don't eat the pickles right away store them in the fridge but they do lose colour and texture quite quickly as we are cutting them quite thin.  If you cut them thicker then they will last longer!
  • this quick pickle recipe will work with any veg so don't limit yourself to cucumbers
