How to Make a Cucumber Salad Made With Vinegar & Sugar

Summer is the perfect time to find a tasty, yet simple cucumber salad recipe. Cucumbers are 96 percent water, which makes them a refreshing and juicy vegetable that you can enjoy plain or with minimal additions. A classic way to prepare cucumbers is to toss them in a vinegar and sugar mixture for a fresh pickle-like salad. The salad takes minutes to prepare and makes an affordable side dish or snack.

Things You'll Need

  • 1/2 cup rice vinegar

  • 4 tsp. white sugar

  • Bowl with lid

Step 1

Scrub the cucumbers clean under running water.

Step 2

Score the cucumbers with a fork. Using the fork to remove portions of the cucumber peel adds a decorative touch to the salad.

Step 3

Cut tip off both ends of each cucumber. Slice the cucumbers into thin, circular pieces.

Step 4

Mix together 1/2 cup rice vinegar and 4 tsp. white sugar in a medium sized bowl.

Step 5

Toss the cucumbers in the vinegar and sugar mixture. Stir until all of the cucumbers are coated with the mixture.

Step 6

Cover the bowl and refrigerate for about an hour or until the cucumber salad has chilled.
