Cucumber, 'Mater and Onion Salad

Holly Grier- Wallace


It's time round these parts for FRESH garden veggies! I have some burpless cucumbers, combined with fresh garden tomatoes, onions and banana peppers for my take on cucumber, tomatoes and onion salad. My version uses apple cider vinegar, in place of the typical distilled vinegar, for a tangy bite of twang that doesn't overpower the infused flavored vinegar. The little extras will leave your taste buds happy! I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we do!

How to Make Cucumber, 'Mater and Onion Salad


  1. Peel and slice the cucumbers and onions. Slice the cucumbers, onions and banana peppers in thin round slices. Cut the tomatoes in wedges and place all of the vegetables in a bowl large enough to cover with the vinegar marinade.
  2. Mix together the vinegar(s)l, water and salt and pepper to taste. Cover the vegetable mixture with the liquid, cover and let sit for at least an hour before serving. Use more water to cover, or add more vinegar to taste. The dish becomes more flavorful the longer it marinates.
  3. There are many varieties of flavored vinegar to choose from. We live in Southern Indiana and love the infused vinegar from Galena Garlic Company, located in Historic Madison Indiana.
  4. You can omit the flavored vinegar and substitute with more apple cider vinegar or distilled vinegar if you like. My Grandmother always added a teaspoon of Sweet N Low to her batches, it mixed together with the distilled vinegar to make a tart/sweet mix that was delicious.
