This simple Cucumber Onion Salad is one of our summer favorites. Perfect for picnics and potlucks or even for a yummy, healthy snack.
I’ve come to learn that sometimes the most simple recipes, are the best. Take French toast, for example. Most of the ingredients are pantry staples, but together they make a simple piece of bread, magical! And how about this grilled chicken marinade. Super easy, and makes the tastiest chicken ever! I will happily add Cucumber Onion Salad to the list of simple, but amazing, recipes.
Cucumber Onion Salad is a total classic, and one of my favorite recipes during the summer for BBQ’s and potlucks or for snacking. I’ll make a big batch and have it in my fridge for days without ever getting sick of it. It’s pretty much on rotation with this tomato cucumber salad. Both work great as a side dish to pretty much any meal. They’re easy to prepare and keep well in the fridge, making them perfect for busy summer days when you don’t want to spend a lot of time in the kitchen.
This dish is a delicious combination of cool cucumber, sweet onion, and tangy marinade that will have you eating most the dish before it ever makes it to the table.
- 6 mini cucumbers
- 1/4 large sweet onion
- 3 tablespoons white vinegar
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 1 teaspoon red wine vinegar
- salt and pepper
Cut the cucumbers into very slices. Slice the wedge of sweet onion into very thin slices.
In a small bowl combine the vinegar, sugar, red wine vinegar, salt and pepper. Taste the dressing--it's easy to adapt it if you want it to be a little sweeter or more tangy.
- Pour dressing over veggies and toss to combine. For best results, allow the mixture to marinate for at least an hour or up to overnight, before serving.
