2 English cucumbers, sliced thin and covered with salt. Let sit in a bowl overnight in fridge.
The next morning, run the sliced salted cucumbers under cold water as you squeeze the moisture out of them.
Put the rinsed and wrung-out cukes in your serving bowl. I use an antique glass dish from the set you can see in the photo. For those who, like me, love antiques, these bowls are Depression Glass Mixing Bowls in green.
I have several different sizes and they make gorgeous serving dishes at Christmas. I also have several in clear glass for such items as Cranberry Sauce which looks much prettier in white or clear. But I digress! Back to Kak's Cukes.
Now you are ready to make the liquid which is poured over top of the cukes and green onions. Take 2 Tbps white sugar and 3 Tbps white vinegar and combine. You have to start tasting this mixture. It must be sweet to the taste before you take the next step! If it is too vinegary, add a tad more sugar. Too sweet? Add more vinegar. Be careful and add in tiny bits, a smidgeon at a time until it is just right to your taste.
It is ready to serve the next day as a wonderful side dish for your fancy Thanksgiving or Christmas Dinner.
