My Grandmother's Delicious Cucumber Salad
- 1 cucumber , slice very thinly into rounds
- 1 large or 2 smaller onions , cut in half and sliced very thinly
- 1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
- 1 tbsp sugar
- salt and pepper to taste
Place sliced cucumber and onion into a medium sized bowl. Toss to combine.
Put vinegar, sugar, salt and pepper into a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Once boiling, pour immediately over cucumber mixture and toss to coat.
Let the cukes sit for at least 1/2 hour, stirring occasionally to soak with the vinegar. Once cukes have wilted slightly, it's ready to eat!
You can also let it marinate over night for a more pickled salad.
Try tossing in some minced basil, cilantro or dill for a herby kick!
This is one of the first recipe I remember learning how to make - my grandmother taught me and it's still one of my favourites!
