  • 6 mini cucumbers
  • 1/4 large sweet onion
  • 3 Tablespoons white vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon red wine vinegar
  • salt and freshly ground black 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.
