Need something quick to take to a party? Try this refreshing cucumber salad from Simply in Season!
There a couple of different variations listed in Simply in Season Expanded Edition (World Community Cookbook), but this one didn’t require soaking or standing time.
- 3 cups cucumbers (thinly sliced)
- 1/2 cup onion (thinly sliced)
- 1/4 cup vinegar
- 2 tablespoons oil
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon sugar (optional)
- Mix together and add to the cucumbers and onions.
The Verdict: I used white wine vinegar and avocado oil; you could definitely experiment with different vinegars and oils. This was very refreshing, although I used granulated sugar so I’m thinking a little honey or maple syrup would work better for adding sweetness. It’s not necessary if you have mild cucumbers, but if they are a little on the bitter side (as can happen when the weather is too hot) this will help cut the bitterness.
