Sweet and spicy cucumbers

Both my daughter and I love cucumbers and pickles. So when I stumbled upon this recipe for sweet and spicy cucumbers, I knew I was going to have to try them!

They are quite easy to make and are a great healthy snack.
You start out by peeling, halving and slicing the cucumbers. I halved the recipe as I only had 1 and 3/4 cucumbers.

The slices are placed in a colander over a bowl. They are then sprinkled with salt, stirred and put in the fridge for an hour.

While the cucumbers sit in the fridge, the sauce is made. The vinegar, water, sugar and red pepper flakes are boiled and then simmered until reduced.

Once the sauce is done, it is removed from the heat and the red onions are added.

After an hour, the cucumbers are taken out and patted dry. The sauce is added and stirred in.
