What You'll Need:
Apple Cider Vinegar
Salt or Lawry's or Adobo
How To Make It:
Soak cucumbers for 15-30 minutes in apple cider vinegar. This will help to remove any dirt and pesticides on the skin. Remove cucumbers from the water then rinse them off. Grab a cucumber and begin to cut it into thin slices. Space out the newly cut slices on a plate. Sprinkle salt, pepper, paprika or any seasoning of your choice on the cucumber slices. Once it's to your liking, place in a Ziploc bag and shake in order to coat all the cucumber slices in seasoning. After that's done, feel free to dig in or store the rest in your refrigerator for another day.
