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.


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)

So funny that you posted that because I was just discussing this with my dad yesterday and made some today to eat. I love it!
