Cucumber Salad (LID)

Cucumber Salad

1 English cucumber, washed, ends removed, and halved and thinly sliced
1/2 medium sweet onion, thinly sliced
1 jalapeno, seeded and minced
1/2 cup white vinegar
1/4 cup water
1 tablespoon sugar
non-iodized salt (I use Morton’s Coarse Kosher Salt), to taste
fresh herbs, like dill (dried dill also works well) or cilantro, minced (optional)

Toss the sliced cucumbers, onions, and jalapeno in a bowl. Combine the vinegar, water, and sugar and then pour over the cucumber mixture. Season with non-iodized salt and herbs (if using) and mix well. Let the cucumber salad sit in the fridge to marinate for at least an hour before eating.
