peeled, thinly sliced cucumbers
sweet onion, thinly sliced
tomato, seeded and chopped
1 1/2 cups
distilled white vinegar
1 1/2 tablespoons
I make this on a smaller scale. just use 2-3 cucumbers, preferrably a purple onion if I have it, a tomato and vinegar, salt, sugar (I usually use Splenda) & a small amount of salad oil. Have used apple cider vinegar also. You can "play" around with it until you like the proportions.
Not bad but very sweet. My mom has made this salad for as long as I can remember. For a more tart version cut the sugar to a pinch and the balsamic altogether.
Excellent recipe. The only thing I will do different next time is to add about 1/8 cup EVOO.
Very good, i love cucumber, tomatoe and onion salad, but never knew how to make it. No one ever told me to add sugar to the vinegar. Thanks!
This is my new favorite summer cuke recipe! A nice change from the creamy mix. I used celery salt and some Mediterran salt. Also soaked the cukes in salt for about 20 mins. beforehand.
Second time making it, I added yellow and red peppers.. yum!
I detest celery seed, so I omitted it. This is a lot but the longer it sat the tastier it got.....Will make again!
Very good! Love the dressing. Only suggestion is to definitely peel off some of the skin of the cucumber to cut down on bitterness.
My mother always used to make this during the summer with vegetables fresh from her garden. I've been trying to recreate her recipe, this is very close, thank you!
