    LUv 2 BaKE's Note:

    It's good!! Not really a recipe, more of an idea. I like eating these (on occasion) with lunch. They are extremely quick and easy to make. The natural cucumber flavor is promident with a hint of vinegary tang.

      This is the way I grew up eating cucumbers. My mother always used apple cider vinegar, and they were great!

      I LOVE this! I've had this since I was kid. Instead of just vinegar I usually add a little salt, pepper, onion powder, and garlic powder and let it sit for a bit. And we actually use white vinegar for this rather than apple cider, though both work great! If you do use white vinegar and want to tone down the tang, I suggest adding a little sugar or for us diabetics, use some splenda... works amazing. If you love this, try it with some jicama! You will definitely fall in love!

      Cucumbers in vinegar are nothing new to me. This is a "southern thang".Down here in the south,we know how to eat and how to fix good and tasty dishes. This is one of them.However instead of 2-3 spoonfuls of vinegar you are supposed to pour in a cup or two of vinegar to allow the cucumbers to be covered so the vinegar will saturate into the cucumbers better. That's where the tangy flavor comes from. We also will cut up an onion or two into small slivers and put the onions in the vinegar with the cucumbers.Oh so good! I usually eat them right out of the vinegar straight,but sometimes I will sprinkle very lightly a little salt on them. Again,oh so good! Here in the south, most of us use white distilled vinegar and not apple cidar vinegar. The apple cidar vinegar is too whew! and tangy,where the white distilled vinegar is just tangy to taste. Anyway,we've always used the white. So just remember people,you heard it right,cucumbers in vinegar is a southern thang! A thang with a twang!
