    Steps

    1
    Done

    Peel and cut the cucumbers in half lengthwise.

    2
    Done

    Use a small spoon or a melon baller to scoop out the seeds and watery center from each half to form a shallow groove down the center.

    3
    Done

    Use a sharp paring knife to slice the cucumbers crosswise as thin as possible, ideally about 1 ⁄8 inch thick.

    4
    Done

    Put the cucumbers in a colander and sprinkle with salt.

    5
    Done

    Ensure that your hands are clean, and toss the mixture to combine the cucumbers with the salt.

    6
    Done

    Set the colander over a bowl and let it refrigerate for at least 1 to 2 hours.

    7

    Squeeze handfuls of cucumber slices with your hands to release any excess liquid and transfer the cucumbers to a medium nonreactive bowl.

    8
    Done

    In another medium nonreactive bowl, combine the white vinegar, cider vinegar, and sugar and stir until the sugar has completely dissolved.

    9
