Cut the cucumbers in half, lengthwise, giving them a rectangular shape. Place them in a large bowl and add salt, moving for a few minutes, then letting them rest for about an hour and a half.
Cut the chiles and garlic into small slices and reserve.
After the hour and a half passes, wash excess salt, and let water run over them for ten minutes or until some of the salty flavor has left. Add all remaining ingredients, letting it sit again for half an hour. Serve.
