3 cucumbers, peeled and thinly sliced
1 TBSP Sea Salt
2 tsp. vegetable oil
1 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp fresh cracked pepper, maybe more if you like it peppery
Peel and thinly slice cucumbers and place them spread out on a dinner plate. I use a food slicer or sometimes a cheese slicer to slice my cucumbers evenly. Liberally sprinkle sea salt on top of sliced cucumbers, let sit on counter for at least 2 hours. After sitting in the salt take one handful at a time and squeeze out all water from cucumbers, place squeezed cucumbers in a bowl. After you've done this with all of the cucumbers, pour oil and just enough vinegar to almost cover all of the cucumbers. Stir in pepper and paprika. Chill before serving. Serve in small salad bowl to keep the vinegar and oil from spreading onto the rest of your food.
If you are going to serve this immediately you can substitute olive oil for the vegetable oil, but olive oil doesn't refrigerate well. I never can seem to be able to make enough of this salad, if I used 10 cucumbers we'd still finish the entire salad every meal.
