Cucumbers and Vinegar



Mmmm.... does anything scream summer more than cukes and vinegar salad? This was a staple growing up in my house. Ironically, I just got off the phone with my mom asking her for the ratio of vinegar and water. I'll never need to write this recipe down-- it's that simple. And so delicous to eat on a hot summer day like today.

Ingredients:

1 cucumber
1 onion
salt and pepper
1 tablespoon or so of sugar
1/2 cup vinegar
1/2 cup cold water

Slice the cucumber and onion and put in a bowl. Sprinkle with sugar, salt and pepper. Mix vinegar and water and add to bowl. Refrigerate until ready to serve. (this is so refreshing when it's ice cold)
