I'm looking for a good recipe for marinated cucumbers. I have a couple cukes I need to use fast.
I have a vague memmory of slicing them, soaking them in salted water, draining, adding thinly sliced onions to the cucumbers, then marinating them in a mild, white vinegar.
The closest recipe I could find was this -- but I'm sure I didn't add sesame oil or peanuts.
Cucumber Salad with Rice Vinegar Dressing CL 06/07
3 cups thinly sliced seeded peeled cucumber (about 2 medium)
3 tablespoons rice vinegar
1 teaspoon sugar
2 teaspoons dark sesame oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons chopped green onions
1 1/2 tablespoons chopped unsalted, dry-roasted peanuts
Combine first 5 ingredients in a medium bowl; toss to coat cucumber. Sprinkle with onions and peanuts before serving.
