A favorite holiday side dish in our family, since I was a little girl, was cucumbers and onions. Now, for family get togethers, these are my job. They are awesome all year round and perfect for a summer side.
For 1 jar of Cucumbers & Onions:
- 1/2 c white vinegar
- 1/2 c water
- 2 tbsp sugar
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
- 1/2 tsp celery salt
- 1 medium field cucumber, sliced
- 1/3 white onion sliced (I cut into c's)
Mix the first 6 ingredients in a large mason jar and give it a good shake, then stuff the jars to the top with cucumbers and onions. Refrigerate for 5-6 hours minimum (best is overnight), drain and serve. I can't say how long these last in the fridge, mine are all eaten within a few days if not the day I make them if it is for a holiday meal.
