  • 1 1/2 cucumbers
  • 1 cup vinegar
  • 1/3 plus cup 1 TBS sugar
  • 2 TBS chili with garlic sauce
  • 1 tsp Kosher salt


  • Cut your cucumbers in half. Spiralize 2 halves, stopping occasionally to snip the spiral (so its not one huge string of cucumber).
  • Place spiralized cucumbers in a jar like a mason jar (about 12 ounces...depends on size of cucumber) or in a small container with a lid (pack them in).
  • Combine vinegar, sugar, chili with garlic sauce and salt in a small pit. Heat jut until sugar melts, stirring occasionally.
  • Pour over the cucumbers, until covered.
  • Allow to cook to room temperature, uncovered.
  • Cover and store in the fridge until ready to enjoy.


After the sugar melts, taste the liquid. Is it sweet enough for you? Spicy enough? You can easily adjust before you pour it over the cucumbers.
