Description

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.

Ingredients

2 tablespoons
honey
1/2 cup
white vinegar
1 teaspoon
mustard seeds, yellow
1 clove
garlic (peeled, smashed)
1 pound
cucumber, English (very thinly sliced)
1  
onion, sweet (small, thinly julienned)
   
salt (to taste)
   
black pepper (to taste)

Instructions

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.
