Super Easy Cucumber Salad

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by ChibiBarako

My mother used to make this by the gallon when our garden had too many cucumbers. It shouldn't be kept more than a month in the fridge (but that's usually not a problem!) As with any marinade the longer it sits the better it tastes.

These turned out very refreshing. Used double the vinegar (5%) and part splenda for the sugar (not doubled - just a couple of extra tablespoons) and seeded the cucumbers. Even two days later, they are still crisp and a great side dish with fried fish and purple hull peas. Thanks for sharing!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put the peeled sliced cucumbers into a large resealable container that fits in your refrigerator.
  2. In a separate bowl mix the sugar, vinegar, and spices.
  3. Pour the marinade over the cucumbers (they should be mostly covered).
  4. Chill, let sit for about 30 minutes before serving.
  5. I don't suggest putting new cucumbers into old marinade, too much risk of contamination. Make a fresh batch of marinade for each fresh batch of cucumbers.
