What’s for lunch?Posted: February 17, 2011
Today I had a salad with slightly pickled cucumbers, carrots and red onion.
Needless to say, yes it was quite delicious!
Recipe for Slightly Pickled Cucumbers, Carrots and Red Onion
Some finely sliced red onion
Some sliced carrots
Some sliced cucumber
Put vegetables in a bow, sprinkle with a good helping of salt. You really just want this to be a quick pickle, so lots of salt will facilitate this – plus draw out excess water.
Depending on how many vegetables you have prepared, mix the rice wine vinegar and water together, a 2:1 ratio of vinegar to water should do. Add sugar to the mixture, again this depends on really how sweet you want it to be – taste it!
Let it pickle for a minimum of 10-15 minutes then serve!!!
