Stir to dissolve.  Add some chili flakes.  Allow the flavors to mingle while you prepare the cucumbers.

I chose small cucumbers because I wanted tiny medallions.  Wash the cucumbers well and slice.

Cover the cucumbers with the brine and let the cucumbers sit in room temperature for a couple days. Then place them in the fridge. Enjoy these pickles in sandwiches, salads or just for a snack.
