Cucumber Salad


Cucumber Salad

This is such a simple and satisfying cucumber salad recipe to make. I love the crunchiness of the cucumbers and onions along with the juicy tomatoes. I served this salad with barbecued pulled pork sandwiches and they went perfectly together. You can use whatever vinegar you have on hand but I use rice vinegar because I love the strong flavor.

Cucumber Salad:


  • 1 large cucumber
  • 1/4 sweet yellow onion, sliced thinly
  • 1 handful of grape tomatoes, sliced in half
  • 1/4 cup of rice vinegar (or whatever flavor you have)
  • 2 tbsp of water
  • 2 tsp white sugar

How to Make a Cucumber Salad

Peel the cucumber then cut in half lengthwise. Take a spoon and scrape the seeds out of each half.

Cut into slightly thick slices. Combine all ingredients into a bowl and mix thoroughly. Let the salad marinate (stirring occasionally) for at least 1 hour (I usually marinate for at least 3 hours).

  1. with the exception of the tomatoes (which sound like a great addition) this has been a family favorite for years.
