It's great to crunch with light-salted cucumbers served with a plate of young potatoes - for such a summer dinner, cutlets are not needed! Fragrant, appetizing - with garlic and dill!
You already wanted to try, do not even have the strength to wait until the cucumbers ferment? And now I’ll tell you how to cook delicious salted cucumbers in just 15 minutes! And glass containers will not be needed, as we will pickle cucumbers in a bag. In the most ordinary sandwich bag. This method of salting is just as unusual, so simple, and what delicious food it turns out!
Ingredients for lightly salted cucumbers in 15 minutes:
- For 1 kg of cucumbers -
- 1 tbsp coarse salt;
- 1 tsp Sahara;
- 1 tbsp vegetable oil;
- 1 tbsp vinegar
- A small bunch of dill;
- 1 large or 2 small heads of garlic.
How to quickly cook salted cucumbers in a bag:
Wash the cucumbers well. So that they quickly and well soaked in spices, it is better to choose small cucumbers. But, if they have grown to the size of a small zucchini, they will also do - we’ll just use it not entirely, but cut it into halves or quarters. For small cucumbers, it is enough to cut off the noses and ponytails.
We put the prepared cucumbers in a food bag - clean, preferably new, and, of course, whole.
Now pour spices on the cucumbers. We take large, non-iodized salt - only ordinary table salt is suitable for salting, as from iodized and small salt, such as Extra, pickled cucumbers become soft. This applies to harvesting for the winter, but, I think, is also true for "fast" cucumbers.
Then pour some sugar.
Now add vegetable oil to the cucumbers. You can take sunflower or olive - which is more to your taste, the main thing is that the oil is fragrant, unrefined - this will turn out to be both healthier and much tastier!
Next, pour a spoonful of vinegar. Here you can also choose - ordinary table 9% vinegar, or fragrant grape or apple.
Peel the garlic, cut the cloves finely, three on a fine grater or pass through a press and also add to the cucumbers.
Dill is dipped for 5 minutes in cold water, and when the dust gets wet from the twigs, rinse under running water, dry it slightly on a towel and cut finely. Pour chopped dill to the whole mouth-watering company. You can add other herbs, the taste and smell of which you like: parsley or cilantro, basil, celery, arugula.
Now carefully collect the top of the bag, releasing air from it, and mix all the ingredients. Immediately turns out amazingly delicious cucumber salad! At this stage, I like cucumbers even more than after salting. Try to eat one right away! And put the rest for a couple of hours in the refrigerator, although you can eat "high-speed" cucumbers before - in 15-30 minutes.
Such salted cucumbers can be stored in the refrigerator for a week - but they are usually eaten earlier, and you need to cook a new portion!
