  • ½ large cucumbers, sliced (see Tip)
  • Lemon juice
  • Ground black pepper

Preparation

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Drizzle freshly squeezed lemon juice and freshly ground black pepper over the cucumber slices.
  • Tip: Cucumbers are often waxed to prevent moisture loss. If you plan to eat the peel, opt for cucumbers sealed in plastic in lieu of waxing (although the wax is edible, it's not tasty). During the summer months, shop for locally grown, unwaxed cucumbers.
  • Did you know? Cucumbers made into dill pickles lose some of their water-soluble vitamins, including vitamin C, in the pickling process-and gain sodium from added salt.
