always reminds me of summer, cucumbers marinated in a sweet-salty vinegar brine


  1. slice the cucumber very thinly and sprinkle with salt, let stand for an hour.
  2. combine all other ingredients in a bowl, stir, chill.
  3. add cucumbers, cover and marinate in fridge over night.
  4. store uneaten cucumbers covered in brine in fridge.

So good! This reminds me of cucumbers and red onions marinated in olive oil and vinegar, but much healthier! Love it. Thanks!

This one brings back enjoyable memories of my mom preparing cucumbers much like this! Understand, the prep time isn't the work time needed, so this dish actually is put together rather quickly! VERY NICE! [Tagged, made & reviewed for one of my adopted chefs in this Spring's Pick A Chef]

I have a recipe for marinated cucumbers but you have to drain and serve the same day. This recipe is fantastic!! I simply followed the instructions but before adding the marinade I put in thinly sliced red (or white) onion, fresh dill and very thinly sliced, on an angle, celery. This recipe allows you to have marinated cucumbers for 2 to 3 days depending on family size. Plenty of liquid so feel free to use two cucumbers. The best was the days of snacking from the bowl everytime I went to the fridge. Soooooo good!!!
