1 1/2 cups thinly sliced English cucumbers
1 tablespoon kosher or coarse salt
2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
In a bowl, combine cucumbers, salt, sugar, and vinegar. With your hands, gently crush cucumbers until limp; let stand at least 10 minutes. Add 3 cups water, mix, and pour into a strainer, pressing gently to remove excess liquid; discard liquid.
