Stupidly simple summer recipes

It is hot so I am lazy with cooking. Here are two really easy foods I like to eat in the summer.

First is salted tomatoes.  Slice up a tomato, add salt (garlic salt is very good), and then eat. I don’t know the science behind it, but adding a tiny bit of salt makes it so much juicier and sweet. Same idea applies to watermelon actually.

Second is sweet pickled cucumber. Slice up 1-2 cucumbers. Mix 1/2 cup white sugar with 1/2 cup white vinegar. Add a little chili powder if you want it to be spicy. Combine the vinegar with cucumbers and mix. Let sit in the fridge for at least 20 minutes, then eat. This is my favorite thing.
