Verdict: Win

This is also one of my mom's recipes that I grew up on. This is probably my favorite way to eat cucumbers.



Sweet and Sour Cucumbers
Yield: Serves 4-6 as a side dish

INGREDIENTS
2 cucumbers, halved length-wise with fleshy insides removed and chopped into 1/4 inch "rainbows"
salt
3 tbsp sugar
Chinkiang vinegar
Sesame oil

DIRECTIONS
Place the cucumber "rainbows" in a container. Lightly salt the cucumbers and stir until evenly coated. Allow the cucumbers to rest in the refrigerator for 3-4 hours, then drain the liquid from the cucumbers.

Add the sugar and stir until evenly coated. Allow the cucumbers to rest in the refrigerator for 1-2 hours, then drain the liquid from the cucumbers.

Add Chinkiang vinegar and sesame oil to taste. Add more sugar if necessary.

(I'll try to get exact measurement later).
