A long time staple in our family, I remember my mother making this often during the hottest days in Texas typically the month of August. I recently, however, served this along with some chili and cornbread and it was a nice compliment.
- 1⁄2 cup sugar
- 1⁄3 cup water
- 1 teaspoon white pepper
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1 1⁄2 cups cider vinegar
- 3 large cucumbers, peeled and thinly sliced
- 1 small onion, quartered
- 2 small heirloom tomatoes, quartered
- 1⁄4 cup chopped fresh parsley
- Mix sugar, water, white pepper and salt in medium saucepan.
- Heat mixture over medium-high heat to boiling and boil until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat and allow to cool. Stir in vinegar.
- Pour mixture over vegetables, cover and refrigerate for several hours before serving.
Wonderfully light and fresh-tasting. The various colors of the heirloom tomatoes brighten this nicely. I loved the fresh parsley, and I think fresh cilantro would work well, too. Thanx for sharing your family recipe!
Served this with burgers tonight and it was great! Very easy to prepare and quite tastefull...even my daughter loved it.
