Simple Cucumbers and Onions
photo by Lavender Lynn
- Ready In:
- 2hrs 15mins
- Combine oil, vinegar, and sugar in a medium to large bowl (big enough to hold all completed salad). Stir until sugar is dissolved (Note: You can heat the dressing to help keep it from separating. It is not necessary, but I do if I have time. If you heat the dressing, be sure to cool it before adding to cucumbers).
- Add cucumbers and onions to dressing. Toss to coat veggies.
- Cover and chill at least 2 hours before serving. The longer it chills, the better it gets!

So refreshing! These are a perfect balance of flavors. They are not overly vinegary, nor too sweet - they are just perfect and I appreciate having them in my fridge and being able to snack on them without feeling too guilty!I was afraid that my yellow onion would be too strong but I shouldn't have. Thanks to Lavendar Lynn for pointing this recipe out to me in the Best of 2009 game and thanks to you CindyMarie and your mom!

I grew up on a farm in Southeast Iowa where I learned to garden, cook, and can with my mom. She always told me not to marry a farmer (kidding, of course), but I did in June 2007. Now I have a big garden on our farm and love to cook and can using fresh goodies from the garden. I work full-time, but enjoy helping out on the farm when I can and taking meals to the field to feed the guys during spring planting and fall harvest.
