Cucumbers are generally a vegetable for warm seasons. They grow on vines in gardens or in pots, and are available in varieties good for both slicing and pickling. A cucumber is ready to be eaten when it is firm, green and crisp. Cucumbers are a low-calorie snack. They can be added to sandwiches, pickled or made into a salad with water and vinegar.



Step 1

Peel two to three cucumbers. Slice and place in large ceramic bowl.

Step 2

Peel sweet Vidalia onion and then dice. Add to bowl.

Step 3

Pour in 1-1/2 cups each of white vinegar and water.

Step 4

Add 1 tsp. sea salt and 1 tbsp. red pepper.


Step 5

Stir ingredients together and refrigerate for a day or two.


Step 1

Dice cucumbers instead of slicing. This will give a different texture to the salad.

Step 2

Add olives or diced peppers to change the taste.

Step 3

Sprinkle mint or basil instead of the red pepper.


Step 4

Add 1 tsp. of sugar to sweeten the mixture.

Step 5

Use apple cider vinegar in place of white vinegar.


To remove excess water from the cucumbers, after slicing them, lay them out on paper towels and sprinkle lightly with salt.
