  • 2 cucumbers
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • Handful of ice cubes
  • ¼ cup rice vinegar, Champagne vinegar, apple cider vinegar or distilled white vinegar
  • Several pinches of flaky salt, such as Maldon
  • Several grinds of black pepper
  • 2 Tbsp snipped fresh dill, mint or chives, or a mixture
  • ½ onion, sliced into thin half-moons


  1. Trim the ends off the cucumber and use a fork to draw stripes down their lengths. Slice cucumbers about 1/8-inch thick and add to a large shallow bowl.
  2. Sprinkle sugar over the cucumber and stir well. Add ice cubes over the slices and chill in the freezer for 1/2 hour.
  3. Drain the cucumbers in a colander and pat dry with a kitchen towel. Return cucumbers to the bowl, sprinkle with vinegar, salt and pepper. Stir well to combine. Toss in the herbs and onions. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
