Sour Cucumbers Recipe: This Cucumber & Onions in Vinegar Recipe Brings Back All the Feels

My grandma always had a bowl of sour cucumbers on her counter – and always in the same Corning Ware bowl with the blue flowers on it. I got that bowl when my grandma passed, and this weekend scored some cucumbers that my daughter forgot in my car after our trip to the farmers market. Nostalgia kicked in and these cucumbers and onions in vinegar are now sitting on my counter, just waiting for me to pick out all the onions as I walk by like I did at grandma and grandpa's house. 

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 0 minutes
Total Time: 5 minutes

Ingredients

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Put the sliced cucumbers into a dish with a lid.
  2. Add the sliced onions.
  3. Pour vinegar over to cover.
  4. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. Set the bowl on the counter for at least a couple hours before eating.

Note: If you want less sour cucumbers, add a little water to dilute the vinegar.
