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.
Sometimes a big salad paired with homemade ranch is just what we need in life. This plant-based alternative may not have all of the dairy but it sure is not missing out on any flavor. With all of the fresh ingredients, this salad is truly something your entire family will enjoy. Whether you are making this for a lunch or a big family dinner, you can always add your own favorites to make this salad to your liking. Get ready to toss this together because once you taste the flavor this salad packs, you will be craving more with each bite!
