How To Make cucumber salad for texas bbq

  • 1
    Wash and dry the cucumbers. Peel alternating strips of the green skin off the cucumber with a vegetable peeler. Slice very thinly with a mandoline-style slicer or a slicing disc of a food processor. Set aside.
  • 2
    Peel shallots and slice at the same thinness as the cucumber. Mix cucumber and shallots. The shallot slices will un-ravel into small rings which is what you want. Set aside.
  • 3
    Whisk sugar, salt and vinegar together until completely dissolved. Pour over cucumber and shallot slices, and mix well, separating the slices to make sure none of them are sticking together.
  • 4
    Put vegetables and all the liquid in a non-reactive (plastic or glass) container with a tight lid and refrigerate, turning occasionally for at least 3 hours or overnight before serving. Taste and adjust seasonings if necessary.
