Julia's Story

Sliced cucumbers and onions in a light homemade sweet/tart vinegar dressing. This recipe is easy, tasty and down right yummy. Make early in the day and let marinate in fridge. Really good served with fried chicken, mashed potatoes and creamy gravy. I make them sugar free with splenda.

Ingredients

1
cucumber, sliced thin
1
sweet onion, slice thin (i like the texas sweet)
3/4 c
sugar, can use splenda instead
1/3 c
cidar vinegar (i use white distilled vinegar)
2 Tbsp
water
1/2 tsp
salt (optional, i don't add it)
pepper, to taste
couple dash(es)
celery seed
couple dash(es)
dried parsley

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Layer sliced cucumber and onions alternately into bowl, set aside.
2
Mix remaining ingredients together, stir until sugar is dissolved. Pour dressing mixture over cucumber and onion mixture. Cover and refrigerate for a couple of hours to marry flavors.
3
Notes: This recipe can easily be doubled.
If my cucumber and onion are large I will double the dressing ingredients.
I like the dressing poured over tomato chunks, chopped cucumber chunks, chopped green onions, green and red pepper chunks and sliced celery for another salad variation. Enjoy!

Blondie, Oh my goodness, you are making them in a motel room and you ate them at 2:30, was that am or pm? I'm so thrilled and glad, you like them. Thanks so much for the approval rating and the 5 stars.

I love cilantro too, I'm going to have to give it a try next time I make them. Thanks for your comments, does my heart good when someone enjoys one of my recipes.

Judy~I made these last night in the motel room in Santa Fe. I ate some around 2:30. They are fabulous!
I did leave out the sugar and added about 1/2 cup of cilantro. I'm trying to cut out sugar, and I love cilantro!
