Ingredients

  • 1 medium English cucumber, cut into thin slices
  • 4 ounces white vinegar
  • 4 ounces water
  • 36 grams granular erythritol (3 tablespoons, or to taste)
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons flat-leaf parsley, chopped

Instructions

  • Add water, vinegar, sweetener, and salt to a saucepan, and heat to dissolve the sweetener, whisking often. 
  • Once dissolved, add the vinegar mixture to a bowl, and add pepper to taste. Add cucumber slices and make sure they are covered by the pickling solution. Cover, and let sit for at least half an hour refrigerated. Before serving, stir in chopped parsley. 
  • Enjoy with salmon, meatballs, or any protein you like!
  • Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days. The flavor will intensify as time goes on.

Notes

  • Use a mandoline or cheese slicer (osethøvel) for very thin cucumber slices.
  • Sugar can be substituted 1:1 for granular erythritol. 
  • Black peppercorns can be used in place of ground black pepper. 
  • Parsley can be substituted or combined with fresh dill, it's delicious! 
  • Apple cider vinegar can be used. 
  • We don't recommend freezing this recipe.
