Cucumber Salad

Yes, another recipe from the summer, when we gathered cucumbers by the dozen. I think I took this picture the last time we had this salad- August, September, or thereabouts. (These recipes are almost painful to post.)

This is my mom's recipe, one that I whip up in the summertime nearly as often as she did back when I enjoyed food from her table at every meal. The flavor is simple and almost stark, easy to prepare, and loaded with salty-sweet, vinegar goodness. If you like salt and vinegar chips, give this a try.

2-3 cucumbers, peeled and sliced into coins
2 tsp. salt
2 tbsp. sugar
1/4 cup white vinegar
1/8 tsp. black pepper

Mix and eat!

* I usually double the vinegar mixture, because I like to drink it from the spoon.
