two 10-inch cucumbers, peeled and scraped
garlic, to taste
3 TBS vinegar
1â�„4 section of red bell pepper (optional)
Peel cucumbers and scrape out seeds. Slice thin with a grater and put slices in a colander. Put 1 TBS salt over the slices, which draws the juices, and press juice out of the cucumbers. Donâ€™t rinse. Put in serving dish. Add garlic, 11â�„2 cup of water, 3 TBS of vinegar and sugar to taste. If salad tastes too sour, add more water. Slices of red bell pepper may be added if desired. Let stand overnight.
This goes well with chicken paprikas.
