Cucumber Vinegar Salad

This is a super simple salad with just a few ingredients that’s perfect for hot summer days. It goes great with a light dinner be it fish or something from the grill. I have a bowl of this simple cucumber vinegar salad sitting in the fridge most days throughout the summer. Not only is it cool and refreshing, the cucumbers also help us stay hydrated on a hot summer day. I hope you give it a try.

Cucumber Vinegar Salad

  • 3 cucumbers
  • 1 red onion
  • 1/2 cup white vinegar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • salt and pepper to taste

Start by taking a look at your cucumbers. If the skin is very tender, don’t bother peeling it. If it seems a little tough, you can either peel the whole cucumber or just take some of it off… I like to create a little stripe design lengthwise.

Cucumber Salad with Vinegar and Onion

 

Slice the onion and cucumber both thinly and add them to a salad bowl. Get out a small bowl and pour the vinegar, water and sugar in it. Stir until all the sugar is dissolved. Add the salt and pepper and pour the mixture over the onion and cucumber slices. Cover your bowl with a lid, a plate or some plastic wrap and store it in the fridge for at least 2 hours or until you are ready to serve your salad. The longer it sits, the better the cucumber vinegar salad gets. I usually make it the night before or first thing in the morning. By dinner time it is absolutely perfect.

  1. I have actually been making this salad for years now, with one exception: some mayonnaise. I’ve tried both variations and it’s perfect to let it marinate overnight or for a day, very delicious!

  2. I ran out of onions, so I made this with a heart of celery instead. I doubled the liquids & sugar since the last time I made it (with an onion), it didn’t cover much of the mix and the stuff on the top dried out a bit. Hopefully, it will turn out ok.

  3. I’ve been looking for this recipie for years .Mom used to make it.Thanks so much
