3/4-1 whole cucumber, sliced and quartered
1/2 red onion, sliced (We just used diced that we had in the fridge)
1/2 jalapeño, thinly sliced or chopped (The original had the seeds in, we seeded it)
1/4 cup white sugar
1/2 cup white vinegar (Next time we will try a milder vinegar like white wine)
1/2 tsp salt (to taste)
Mix all together and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, stirring occasionally to dissolve the sugar completely.
