Sweet Heat Cucumber Salad

Sweet Heat Cucumber Salad

I found this recipe on YouTube while looking for videos on my vacuum sealer (I have the one in the video) and I am so thankful I did! I love this so much. I did make a few modifications to mine shown below but you can see their recipe in the description of their video on YouTube.
Servings 8


  • 4-5 Cucumbers
  • 1 medium Thinly sliced onion
  • 1 medium Thinly sliced green bell pepper
  • 1 medium Thinly sliced red bell pepper
  • 1/2 jalapeno with or without seeds depending on spice level you prefer
  • 2 Cloves garlic


  • 1 cup Malt vinegar
  • 2 cups Sugar
  • 1 tsp Celery seed
  • 1 tsp Mustard seed
  • 1 tbsp Salt


  • Put vinegar, sugar, salt, celery seed and mustard seed in a pot and bring to a boil.
  • Leave simmering for a bit to thicken up/reduce down.
  • Remove from heat and let cool, first on the stove and then, when cool enough, put in the fridge to cool completely.
  • Slice up veggies and pack into two quart-sized jars with one clove of garlic each. I put the jalapeno in one jar only. I don't do heat well but others in my family do.
  • Pour cooled mixture over veggies. If they don't cover completely, don't worry. The mixture will become more liquidy and the veggies will shrink. I just flipped my jar over once every few hours to mix it around.
  • Refrigerate for 4 hours. They say if you vacuum seal the jars, it can last up to 2 months in the fridge. Otherwise, treat them like refrigerator pickles. Or just eat the entire jar at once. No shame in that!
