Salted cucumber is the favorite appetizer in Russia. Every Russian family has its own recipe of salted cucumbers. Homemade salted cucumbers are different from the store pickles. They don’t contain vinegar and have a mild flavor. They also have a little salt. My recipe of salted cucumbers is very simple. Your cucumbers will be ready after 1-2 days. For this recipe you need a large airtight plastic container.
