How to crisp cucumbers


Making cucumbers crisp for the salad increases their appeal and crunch factor. Here is what to do.

Step One

Slice the cucumbers as usual.

Step Two

Place the slides in a colander. You'll probably need to layer them, that's fine.

Step Three

Put the colander filled with cucumber slices into a bowl.

Step Four

Sprinkle the cucumber with salt. Then, cover the slices with ice cubes.

Step Five

Place the bowl and colander into the refrigerator. Leave for one hour.

Step Six

Remove the cucumber from the refrigerator and pat dry. The cucumber is now ready to serve. If you're not quite ready to serve, simply pop the slices back into the fridge; they'll stay crisp.
