This has got to be one of my hubby's favorite side dishes.
He even loves this for a nice refreshing snack.
This was also one of my dad's favorites and so his easy recipe has become one of our best memories from within the kitchen!
Isn't it amazing how a certain food triggers memories from your childhood?!
In order to make this yummy recipe,
You Will Need:
Sweet And Tangy Cucumbers
2-3 cucumbers, peeled and sliced
1 small red onion, thinly sliced
1-2 garlic cloves, chopped fine
1-2 tsp. freshly ground Cayenne (store bought is fine too)
Salt and Pepper to taste
1 1/2 cups Vinegar
2 1/2 cups Water
2 Tbsp. Olive Oil
1/2 cup Sugar
In a large bowl, Stir the vinegar, water, oil and sugar. Mix well.
Add in the garlic, cayenne, salt and pepper.
Pour liquid mixture over your cucumbers and onions.
This tastes better if you keep in fridge and let the flavors marinate overnight.
Another thing to try is putting a few hard boil eggs in whole with the cucumbers
and or for extra heat add some jalapenos.
I hope you enjoy this easy snack as much as we do!!
