Fresh Kirby cucumbers (or other dense cucumber with thin skin. Avoid salad cucumbers or waxed cucumbers)
2 cups pure water (non-chlorinated. If your tap is chlorinated, leave to sit on the counter uncovered overnight and the cholrine will dissipate. Bottled water also works)
1 tablespoon Kosher salt (or fine sea salt. Do not use iodized salts)
Fresh garlic (optional)
Fresh dill (optional)
Experiment with other spices and veggies like onion, coriander, and jalapeno!
