My Mom has been making this for us for years for summer picnics and BBQ’s. It’s one of my favorites. She got the recipe from my Aunt Carter and so I went straight to the source to bring this to you. It’s great for bathing suit season because there is no oil. It’s made with Apple Cider Vinegar and a little sugar to balance out the tartness. A lot of the measurements can be adjusted to taste. There should be enough liquid to cover the cucumbers and onions. The amounts I have for you in this recipe fit my mason jar but if you were to make this in a large bowl you may need to increase your liquid. Be sure to keep the proportions 1 part vinegar to 1/2 part water. The sugar and pepper can be adjusted to taste. I like to leave it in the fridge at least 8 hours to let the cucumber and onion to soften. It’s so yummy! What family favorites do you make in the summer?
