I'm always at a loss as to how to categorize this dish. Is it a side dish? Yes. Is it a salad? Well, sorta. Is it delicious? Definitely!
During the summers of my childhood, this was a staple in our home along with both sets of grandparents. The ingredients are humble and simple. Cucumbers, Vidalia onions and apple cider vinegar with a touch of salt and pepper. Additional vegetables were added to the vinegar as needed. I can't imagine summertime without this wonderful combination making a lasting appearance on the supper table.
Cucumbers, thinly sliced
Vidalia Onions, sliced into wedges
Apple Cider Vinegar / Water
Freshly ground black pepper
Place cucumbers and onions in a bowl with a resealable lid. Lightly salt and pepper the veggies.
Now to the vinegar. I normally go 2 parts vinegar to 1 part water. If that's too strong for your taste, go half and half.
Refrigerate until ready to serve.
