When I was growing up, this super-simple dish was a staple in our summer menu. It’s best to let the cucumbers and onions marinate for a few hours before eating. There is no set amount of cucumbers and onions to add to the marinade. When I made this a few days ago I used about 1/4 of a large onion and 2 cucumbers. I could have easy added more if I would have had more on hand. If you add too much though, the vegetables won’t get marinated much.
Cucumbers & Onions
1/2 C. Sugar
1 C. Apple Cider Vinegar
1 C. Water
1/4 tsp. Salt
Onion (I usually use white)
Mix first 4 ingredients well. Add cucumber and onion. Refrigerate. (Works best if you let this “marinate” in the refrigerator at least a few hours before serving.)
*Update: I tried this with 1/2 C. raw honey in place of the sugar and it worked well! I just had to stir a lot to make sure the honey got completely mixed in.
