First of all, I apologize for the simplicity of this "recipe". I know some of you make these all the time. But, I'm taking the chance that there's one person out there, in some far away land, who is looking at a cucumber and wondering what can be done with it. At least I'm hoping that's the case. So, I'm going to give you a suggestion for what to do with said cucumber. Plus, my husband really wanted this dish so he went to the store and brought home a big bag of cucumbers. What could I do? There wasn't much of a choice. Fortunately, I love them, too. And, maybe you will, too, if you don't already.
3-4 medium (or 6-8 small) cucumbers, peeled and sliced
1 Vidalia onion, sliced
1 tsp. sugar
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
In a large bowl, add the cucumbers and onions. Sprinkle with seasonings. Add enough vinegar to cover the cucumbers. Cover and refrigerate until chilled.
A teaspoon of salt
Throw in some pepper while you're at it.
Cover with plain old white vinegar. Refrigerate until chilled. I like mine "fresh" while the cucumbers are still crunchy. Eric will eat on them for days, loving them after they start to get soft.
I'll warn you. These babies have quite a kick to them. But, in a good way...
