Cucumber Salad ~ Simple & Delicious Summer …

Makes: 4 cups

Description: A simple and delicious Summer salad that can be kept in the refrigerator for days, adding to it as you go.

3  large cucumbers, seeded
1  small white onion sliced
1  small red onion sliced
1/4 cup  white vinegar
1/4 cup  cider vinegar
1/4 cup  water
1/2 cup  sugar
2 tsp.  dill

Instructions: Peel the cucumbers and cut in half lengthwise. Using a small spoon, scoop out the seeds from each half, forming a groove down the center.

Using a sharp knife, slice the cucumbers crosswise as thin or as thick as you would like them. Slice onions. Place onions and cucumbers into a medium, nonreactive bowl or container that has a lid (like glass or Pyrex).

In a small nonreactive bowl, combine the white vinegar, cider vinegar, water, sugar, and dill, and stir until the sugar is completely dissolved. Pour over sliced cucumbers and onions. Stir to combine all the ingredients.

Now, if you have time, let the dish sit in the fridge for an hour or so before serving. You don't have to do this, but the longer the cucumbers marinate, the better they will taste.

Keep in fridge, adding cucumbers and onions as needed.
