Cucumber & Onion Salad

This is another recipe from my Pennsylvania German heritage.  I made it for Thanksgiving one year and my friend Debbie loved it.  Every time she came over I had to make it.

Makes 6 to 8 servings: Salad Recipes from AlansKitchen.com

Prep Time: 15 min.
Chill Time: Overnight

Ingredients:

  •    2  medium cucumbers, peeled and thinly sliced

  •    2  medium red onions, thinly sliced

  • 1/2  teaspoon salt

  •    1  cup cold water

  •    1  cup sugar

  •    1  cup white vinegar

Directions:

  1. In a glass bowl, you want to layer the cucumbers and onions.

  2. In another glass bowl, mix water, sugar and vinegar.  Stir sugar until dissolved into the mixture.

  3. Pour over cucumbers and onions.   Cover glass bowl and chill in refrigerator overnight.

Alan's Kitchen Picnicking & Tailgating Tips:
You need to do this recipe a day or two in advance.  For picnicking or tailgating, I would put the onions and cucumbers in a large jar.  Then when you are ready to load the ice chest, place the jar in there.  When you get to the picnic or tailgate site, pour into small paper bowls and use as a salad.
