Pickled cucumber, a great appetizer that tastes splendid when served chilled. This salad must be made in advance so that the flavors are soaked up by the cucumber chunks. The salt-sweet-sour cucumber is extremely refreshing. Try grating ginger into the salad for a more flavorful version, or add chopped garlic if you prefer a garlicky flavor. Crunchy and yummy!
