Cucumber Salad

{Cucumber Salad shown with shrimp scampi and creamy parmesan rice; a gluten-free meal}

I make this simple Cucumber Salad as a side all the time. It’s easy, refreshing, delicious and my entire family loves it! This makes a great dish for picnics…multiply the recipe as needed! 

Peel an English Cucumber like so; Why? Because it’s pretty.

Slice in thin slices.

Slice a sweet Vidalia onion into thin slices.

Mix water, white vinegar and sugar together. 

Pour over cucumbers and onions and let marinate for at least 2 hours {you may make ahead of time in the morning}.

  1. Thanks Janelle! I’m going to make this today.

  2. Thank you Janelle. My Grandma used to make this when I was a kid. It’s one of my favorite dishes in the summer.
    God bless.

  3. These were really good, especially after they marinated. I did add about 1/2 cup of sugar since I was serving it with steak and cheese sandwiches. The sandwiches are hot and salty and I wanted something cold and sweet. Is 3/4 cup of vinegar the right amount?
