Description

Smashed cucumbers come together in under half an hour and are the most delicious light summer side dish! This is a perfect use for lots of garden cucumbers.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 4 small cucumbers, pickling or persian style
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar

Instructions

  1. Cut the cucumbers into bite sized chunks.
  2. Arrange the cucumbers in one layer on a cutting board, and place a baking sheet or skillet over top. Rock the baking sheet or skillet back and forth over the cucumbers, pressing down slightly, to smush the cucumbers a bit.
  3. Transfer the smashed cukes to a colander set over a bowl. Sprinkle with the salt and sugar and toss.
  4. Let the cucumbers sit and drain for about 30 minutes until ready to eat. Taste, and add a bit more salt or sugar if you’d like.
  5. Serve with all meals. Enjoy!

Notes

Jazz these up any way you’d like! Add lemon/lime juice, fresh herbs, sesame oil, olive oil, crushed red pepper, sriracha, the sky’s the limit!
