Grammy's Cucumber Salad


3 Persian cucumbers sliced thin rounds

1 small onion thin half-moons (preferably red)

1/2 tsp. sea salt

1 - 2 Tbsp. rice vinegar

1 Tbsp. maple or rice syrup


Mix well most of the salt with the cucumbers, set aside. Mix the rest of the salt with the onions separately. Allow to sweat, about an hour. Squeeze out the excess liquid from both the vegetables, put them both in another bowl together, add the vinegar and syrup, toss together lightly.

Variations: add toasted sesame seeds, tahini, mirin. Keeps best for 2 days. Refrigerate.
