Easy Cucumber Salad is a super delicious, fresh tasting dish.
It’s an easy recipe and the taste is sweet and sour from the vinegar and sugar, so you get a ‘pickled’ flavor. You can make this ahead of time and refrigerate until you’re ready to serve.

Transfer to paper towel and pat dry, then put in a container with a lid, together with the onions.
2. Mix together the vinegar, water and sugar in a pan and bring to a slow boil. Then allow to simmer until clear. Remove from heat and cool.
3. After this mixture is COMPLETELY cool pour over the cucumbers and onions and pop in fridge.
