Helpful hints

  • The longer cucumbers and onions marinate, the softer they become and more flavors are absorbed also.
  • Sweet and Sour Cucumbers can be stored in a canning jar. Great for gifts.

Sweet and Sour Cucumbers

What a coincidence. I'm 74 years old, and as far back as I can remember, my Mother would prepare Cucumbers and Onions in Vinegar and water, WHICH I am still making for myself, to this day. Sort of like your Sweet & Sour. Nice to know that it is one of the approved items to be able to eat, as a renal failure person.........

This was a great salad, made it for a family party and everyone loved it. I chopped up the leftovers and put on my salad the next day in place of salad dressing and it was awesome.
