One of my favorite things I recently acquired a taste for are my grandmothers cucumber and onion salad, which is marinated in vinegar and sugar overnight. The sweet taste and tangy flavor from the two ingredients give this side dish the perfect touch it needs.
Yields 2 cups
Serves 2-3 people
1 medium onion, sliced very thin
1 English cucumber, sliced thin
1/4 cup vinegar to start then 1/2 cup of more
1-1/2 tsp. organic cane sugar
- Thinly slice the onion, cucumber, and add to a mixing bowl.
- In another bowl, add the vinegar, sugar, and stir combined. Pour over cucumber and onions and give a good toss.
- Place into the fridge for 3-4 hours or overnight for best results.
Chef’s tip: Allow the cucumbers, onion, and “brine” to meld overnight for maximum flavor.
