Salted Cucumber Salad

Danish Salted Cucumber Salad

The Danish love to salt their cucumbers, removing the water inherent in this summery vegetable and infusing the flesh with salt and lemon juice. It is a delightful dish, and interestingly it is perfectly suited to the extreme heat of Australian Summers as well as the cool Summers of those far Northern regions.
