I love simplicity. And I really love when simple dishes are fantastic.
These marinated cucumbers… I’ve been eating them as long as I can remember. My mom has always made them, and I believe she got the recipe from my grandmother (and I wouldn’t be surprised if she got the recipe form her mother, who grew up in Japan).
They’re so good with rice and fish. And so easy to make!
- 1/8 cup rice vinegar
- 1/8 cup sugar
- 1/8 cup water
- Slice the cucumber very thinly (I use a mandoline).
- Mix the rice vinegar, sugar, and water. Marinate the cucumbers in this mixture for at least four hours.
- Discard the marinade, and enjoy the cucumbers!
