Classic cucumber and onions! A childhood favorite of mine! I can't have a summer cookout without them! I heart the salty,vinegary crunch of the garden cucumbers in this dish! I remember snacking on cucumber and onions in the warm summer months when I was a kid. As an adult, not much has changed about that. Here is how my mother made this classic dish growing up, and how continue to make them now.
One cucumber, peeled and sliced
1/2 to 1 sweet onion, sliced thinly
1/2 c. white vinegar
2 c. water
2 tbs. salt
1 tbs. sugar
Mix vinegar, water, salt and sugar. Soak cucumbers and onions in the liquid for 3-4 hours, or overnight for best results.
