Cucumber and Onions



My mother-in-law makes these in the summer and they are quite good. I don't normally eat cucumbers, but I really enjoy these. You will see two recipes here. The first one is my mother-in-law's and the second is from my friend Stefanie. They are both very similar and tasty. :)

Mother-in-law Version:
1 cucumber, peeled and sliced thinly
Thinly sliced onion
1 Tbsp. cider vinegar
1 tsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. black pepper

Mix together. Best when chilled for several hours. Will keep for several days in 'frig.

Stefanie Version

Ingredients
3 medium cucumbers, thinly sliced; peeled (some skin is okay)
1 medium sweet onion, sliced thin and separated into rings
1 cup white vinegar
1 cup water
1/4 cup sugar, or more to taste (or diet sweetener)
Salt and Pepper to taste



Directions
Layer cucumbers with the onion in a large bowl. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Add white vinegar, water and sugar. Mix by tossing vegetables. Taste mixture and adjust for taste.
Cover and chill for 2-4 hours before serving
