Sweet and Sour Cucumbers

This classic summertime recipe is the perfect picnic salad and pairs well with grilled meats, seafood and poultry, particularly Thai- or Mediterranean-inspired dishes. A few drops of sesame oil adds an Asian twist, or toss in some minced serrano pepper to spice it up.
In a small saucepan, bring the honey, vinegar, mustard seeds and garlic to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer 1 minute. Remove the pan from the heat and let cool. Discard the garlic clove. In a large bowl, toss the cooled vinegar mixture with the cucumbers and onion and a pinch each of salt and black pepper. Let the cucumbers sit for at least 1 hour before serving.
