How to Make Cucumbers and Onions
- Layer sliced cucumber and onions alternately into bowl, set aside.
- 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.
- 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!
