Start off by letting the sliced cucumbers sit in a sieve or strainer for 20-25 minutes. This gets rid of the excess water, so that the flavour of the vinegar will come out better later.
Dust a little sea salt on top and use lotion so that your hands aren't as nasty as mine.
|Wasn't that simple? I served mine with rice. I ate it right away, but I think it would work just fine if you kept it in the fridge for a day or two!|

1 Cucumber, thinly sliced
1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground sea salt
1 small minced shallot
1 tablespoon apple cider or rice vinegar
2 tablespoons olive, vegetable, or canola oil
Fresh mint or basil (to taste)
Spread the cucumbers in a strainer and let sit for 20-25 minutes. If the cucumbers are a little wet, pat them dry with a paper towel. Sprinkle the salt, shallot, basil/mint, vinegar, and oil on top. Toss the cucumbers to coat them all evenly. Enjoy!
