Cucumber Salad (or wilted cucumber/onions)
Cucumbers, thinly sliced
Onions, paper thinly sliced
1 cup cider vinegar
1 cup sugar
2 to 4 Tablespoons oil (when I use oil – it is Olive Oil)
Mix together the vinegar, sugar and oil.
Pour over thinly sliced cucumbers (I usually use my PC Lemon Zester/Scorer to take away some of the peel up and down the length of the cucumber before I slice them– I like to fancy them up to pamper myself – LOL) and thinly sliced onions (almost paper thin).
Let set about 24 hours (at least overnight).
I like to keep some made up when I have homegrown cukes.
Great as an addition to almost any kind of a meal.
Note: Sometimes I only use 1/2 the recipe – depending on how much cucumber I have.
I have never tried adding green peppers (bet it would be good though).
