Gingered Cucumbers


  • 1/2 large English cucumber 1 cup worth, peeled and cut into 1/4" x 2" strips
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp ginger peeled and grated
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 tbsp sugar Or 1/2 tsp Stevia
  • 3 tbsp rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp sesame oil


  • Take the 2 tsp of salt and sprinkle over the cucumbers, set in a bowl and put aside for half to one hour.
  • Mix the other ingredients in a bowl.
  • Drain the cucumbers, squeeze gently to extract liquid and pat dry with paper towels.
  • Put in bowl with dressing and toss to coat.
  • Set aside for about 20 minutes at room temperature / 1 hour in the fridge.


I like cold pickles / cucumbers, so marinated longer in the fridge, rather than their recommended 20 minutes at room temp.
