Grandma's Sweet and Sour Cucumber Salad

1 English cucumber OR 6 Lebanese cucumbers
1/2 teaspoon salt

3/4 tablespoon white vinegar
1 tablespoon neutral oil (e.g. sunflower or canola oil)
1 tablespoon raw sugar

freshly ground pepper

Serves 4
Thinly slice the cucumbers. Sprinkle with salt and let stand for about 30 minutes. Squeeze them gently to get rid of excess water. Transfer to serving bowl.
Combine the white vinegar, oil and sugar. Mix into cucumbers and adjust seasoning, e.g add more sugar if the vinegar is too dominant. Top with freshly ground pepper. This salad is especially refreshing when cooled in the refrigerator for 1-2 hours before serving.
