Quick Cucumber Salad
Skin the cucumber and slice in very thin rings.
Put in a soup plate.
Sprinkle the salt on top.
Put the bottom of another soup plate resting on the cucumber.
Put a 2 pound weight on top and leave for 1 to 2 hours.
Pour off the liquid that is drawn out of the cucumber and discard.
Dress the cucumber with the oil, vinegar, and pepper.
This treatment makes the cucumber very easy to digest.
