Here is a quick appetizer, side dish, or main dish to keep in your recipe book. Cucumber Salad is here for you. And, it is an easy one to make! Cucumber Salad has crunchy, spicy, salty, and acidic elements. All it takes is four ingredients to whip together. Let’s get started on making it, shall we?
The ingredients that you will need to make this Cucumber Salad are 2 either English cucumbers or 4 Persian cucumbers that are thinly sliced, ½ cup of white vinegar and salt and pepper, to taste. That is all! I should mention that you may use apple cider vinegar if you prefer to do so. Apple cider vinegar would add a delicious element of flavor.
To make this, first, in a medium-sized bowl mix together the thinly sliced cucumbers, white vinegar, salt, and pepper, to taste. Next, cover the bowl and refrigerate it for 1 hour to let the flavors marinate. And, finally, after 1 hour, remove the bowl from the refrigerator. Serve and Enjoy! Add a bit more salt and pepper if you like. Depending on how your taste buds react, you might need a glass of water to help you with the acidity.
Be sure to thinly slice your cucumbers so that the vinegar dressing can get nicely infused into each slice. When you take your first bite, surely you will be able to taste every ingredient used. So, it is best to go light with the salt and pepper first and allow it to marinate. Then, try it after the 1-hour marinating period to see if you need to add more.
If you are choosing to eat this Cucumber Salad as a side dish, just know that it can go well with any protein or main staple you decide to pair it with. I love pairing my Cucumber Salad with either meat lasagna or vegetable lasagna. I will have to share both of my lasagna recipes with you here in this blog. They are crowd-pleasers!
