Sliced Cucumbers and Onions in Vinegar
From Lynda's Recipe Box
Method: Use as many cucumbers as you want. I used 2 smaller, about 8inch cucumbers and 1 medium sweet yellow onion. This was enough to fill a 1 quart dish about 1/2 full. However, this dish will keep very well in the refrigerator, so don't be afraid to slice up more.
Peel, (if desired), and slice the cucumbers thinly. Cut the onion into thin slices also, and place cukes and onions into the dish in alternate layers.
Mix 1 part cider vinegar with 2 parts water. I used 1/2 cup cider vinegar and 1 cup cold water this time. Taste! If the vinegar is too strong for you then add some more water. Likewise if you want a stronger vinegar bite. Add salt and pepper to taste. Pour over the cukes and onions. Chill for several hours before serving. They get better every day so enjoy!
