Cucumber Salad

2 cucumbers
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
2 tablespoons parsley

Peel the cucumbers so that no skin is left.  You can find seedless cucumbers that come in a tight plastic covering.  The skin on these cucumbers is very thin and can be left on.  Slice into very thin pieces.  A mandolin can be used, but I prefer just a knife.  Put all of the slices in a bowl and toss with the salt.  Allow this to sit for a half hour to pull out the moisture in the cucumber.  Pour away the excess liquid after a half hour.

Whisk together the olive oil and red wine vinegar and pour over the cucumbers.  Toss together and sprinkle with chopped parsley.  Chill for a half hour.  Enjoy!
