Cucumbers & Onions

Unfortunately, I have to rely on dear friends to share their garden's bounty with me. When I am ever so lucky to have cucumbers shared with me or I see that perfect cucumber at the market, nostalgia kicks in and I am taken back to those summer afternoons where my mom would whip up this garden sensation. There is something special about a cold, marinated cucumber on a hot summer day!

Cucumbers & Onions
A Garden’s Delight!!

3 cucumbers, peeled and thinly sliced
½ to 1 onion, thinly sliced
1 1/3 cups water
1 1/8 cups apple cider vinegar
½ cup sugar
½ tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper

Combine all ingredients, refrigerate for 6 hours before serving. Recipe can be adapted to your personal preference – more sugar, salt, pepper, etc.
