A wonderful ways to use Cucumbers. I was not sure how to prepare the cucumber ~ whether to de seed them or how to cut them, so I went with my instincts. I deseeded them and cut them into halves. I made as written although - I did add some dried chilli & I only refrigerated for 12 hours as I did not have them time for 24 hours. We did like these, although everybody agreed they were a little sweet, so next time I will cut the sugar down a little. A really wonderful recipe, that made for a lovely side salad. Added Note: I had some of this salad left over from yesterday and served it again for dinner, it is indeed a different salad after 24 hours. Not as sweet and more of a pickled taste. Three of us loved it.
