While visiting the in laws in Pennsylvania, I was overwhelmed by all of the vegetables, fruit, and herbs they have at their disposal. I dream of having a garden one day (and not killing everything), but for now it will remain a dream! Until it becomes a reality, I will mooch off of the in laws 🙂
Among other items, they were able to send me home with 3 delicious and plump cucumbers and a handful of fresh dill; with it, a recipe that was handed down from her mother, so I was very excited to try it.
If you love cucumbers and vinegar, with a sweetness of sugar and red onion then you must try this as a nice appetizer, snack, side dish, or even lunch!
Serving Size: 4 People
4 large cucumbers
1 red onion thinly sliced
1 tablespoon dried dill weed or 3 tablespoons fresh dill (more or less)
1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup white vinegar
1/2 cup water
1 clove garlic (optional)
1 teaspoon salt (optional)
- In a large serving bowl, combine cucumbers, onions, garlic and dill
- In a medium size bowl combine sugar, vinegar, water and salt; whisk until the sugar dissolves
- Pour the liquid mixture over the cucumber mixture
- Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours before serving (marinating longer enhances the flavor!)
