When I was a kid, I remember my Mom and Dad putting sliced cucumbers in a bowl with salt, pepper, and big slices of onions, then soaking them in vinegar in the refrigerator. I loved those super cold and crisp vinegar cucumbers, but until recently I forgot all about them. This recipe is similar, with a great sour taste from the vinegar and a wonderful fresh, crisp flavor from the cucumbers. Such a great snack!
Cucumber Vinegar Salad
Source: Mom and Dad
1 English cucumber, sliced as thinly as possible
1/2 vidalia onion, finely sliced
Salt and pepper
1. Place the cucumber and the onion in a bowl and sprinkle with plenty of dill, salt, and pepper.
2. Coat the salad in vinegar, to preference. I like to use a small bowl and pour until the vinegar just covers the cucumbers.
3. Chill in the refrigerator before serving.
what kind of vinegar did you use???
Oh I’ve used all kinds….white vinegar or apple cider vinegar usually. If you want a more mellow flavor, you can also cut the vinegar with some water (it is intense!).
Did you peel the cucumber?
No, I don’t peel them, but you certainly can if you prefer.
This was so easy and so good! Thanks for the great recipe!
So glad that you enjoyed it!
