This is a must have dish for the summer - a nice appetizer, a fresh bite as a side salad. The beauty of this dish is that it is so simple and so quick! You can start enjoying the cucumbers already in couple of hours but the best if you can wait some 5-6 hours.
Melt the sugar and salt in a boiling water, chill it afterwards.
Cut off both ends of the cucumbers (this helps to speed up the salting process).
Arrange in a bowl spices and cucumbers in layers. Finally pour over the chilled marinade and put something heavy on the top, e.g. a stone. Alternatively you can use a jar - just make sure that the cucumbers get staffed very tight.
