We are going old-school today! This is a full-on Granny M. recipe (with just a few Mom tweaks).
Granny M. would make this all the time in the summer. There always seemed to be a bowl in the refrigerator, tightly covered with plastic wrap. She called this a cucumber and onion salad but it is really more of a quick refrigerator pickle.
Granny M. only used cucumbers and onions. I like to spice things up and always add a couple of fresh hot peppers. I really like the taste of rice wine vinegar so I use that instead of white distilled vinegar. However, either will work great. I have even used apple cider vinegar and they turned out FABULOUS!
We all love this salad…
or is it these pickles?
Good thing it is so quick and easy to make.
These go great with just about anything, but I really like them with grilled meats. If you have extra, cover them tightly and store in the refrigerator. Use them on a sandwich the next day for that extra flavor punch!
Love you both!
