Stupidly easy Hungarian cucumber salad is a refreshing addition to nearly any hot-weather dinner.

Peel a few Kirby cukes (they're less watery than the standard type). Shave into thin wafers on a mandoline, or the mandoline blade on the side of your box grater. Place in a shallow bowl. Salt & pepper (Hungarians sprinkle on a little white sugar, but I don't think it adds anything). Top with a few glugs of white or cider vinegar, no fancy wine or sherry or Balsamic stuff. Add just enough cold water so that the cukes are nearly swimming in the dressing...you want close to a 50/50 ratio of vinegar to water. Stick in the fridge to chill while you make everything else.
