Since I made this old favorite the other day and my old photo was a terribly washed out pic from 2011, I decided it was time to give some much needed love to this post.
So next time you get invited to a summer potluck, think cucumber pickles. Such an easy and delicious side and you probably won't bring any home with you.
- 4 large cucumbers, sliced thin
- 1 onion, sliced thin
- 2 C. sugar
- 1 C. white vinegar
- 1 Tbs. salt
1. Put cucumbers and onion in a large bowl.
2. In a saucepan heat sugar, vinegar, and salt until dissolved. Pour over vegetables and cool. Cover and refrigerate until serving. (Don't worry if the liquid doesn't cover all of the pickles. It will after it sits a while.)
This will still be delicious for a few days if stored in the refrigerator, but they never last that long in our house.
