Cucumber in vinegar and sugar

    10 min

    This is my grandma's recipe for a refreshing, traditional Dutch side dish. In my family, this is served as a side dish with meatballs, boiled potatoes and cauliflower (or other veggies).

    1. Peel cucumber and cut into very thin slices. You could use a cheese slicer or mandoline to do this. Place in a large bowl.
    2. Add vinegar and sugar; toss to coat cucumber. Set aside for about 15 minutes. You can adjust the amount of sugar to taste. Don't add too much vinegar, because the cucumber will release a lot of water as well.
