Super side dish. I served this with Chicken Parmesan, it was the perfect contrast. I let the cucumbers marinate overnight.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine first 6 ingredients in saucepan and bring to a boil, stirring so the sugar dissolves.
  2. Turn off heat and set aside for about 5 minutes.
  3. Slice vegetables and place in large mixing bowl.
  4. Pour vinegar mixture over veggies and toss a bit.
  5. Layer in a large flat dish (I use my Pyrex 13 by 9 pan) that has a tight fiting lid.
  6. Refrigerate, covered, for at least one whole day (but a couple days is even better).
  7. Stir every 6 hours or so to be sure all cucumbers get marinaded.
  8. Serve chilled as a salad or as a delicious edible garnish.
