What’s Cooking Wednesday: Cucumber Salad

This is one of my FAVORITE things to eat. I first had it at my mother-in-law’s house, and now I always look forward to visiting the in-laws because she usually has a batch of cucumber salad on hand. When we went to their cabin in the Blue Ridge mountains for Father’s Day weekend, they thought I was weird because I ate it as a midnight snack. It’s just that good. And, it’s super simple to make.

First, chop up three cucumbers and half an onion. I actually didn’t use the full half onion in the mixture because I didn’t want it to overpower the cucumbers.

Put the veggies in a bowl. In a separate bowl, combine 2 cups of white vinegar, 1/2 cup of sugar, 4 tablespoons of water, and dashes of salt and pepper.

When the sugar is completely dissolved, pour the mixture over the cucumbers  and onions.

The end result? Yummy cucumber salad! Seriously, this whole bowl might be gone before my husband gets home from work!
