Cucumber & Red Onion Salad
Here's a little different twist on a perennial summer favorite. This salad pairs beautifully with grilled meats and other summer fare.
From: PatioDaddio — September 28, 2009
3 large Cucumbers, peeled and sliced about 1/8" thick
1 medium Red onion, halved and sliced about 1/8" thick
1 jar (4 oz) Diced pimentos, not drained
1/2 cup Granulated sugar
1/2 cup White vinegar
1/2 cup Rice wine vinegar
2 Tbsp Dried parsley
1 Tbsp Dried tarragon
1 Tbsp Dried dill
1 Tbsp Garlic salt
1 Tbsp Seasoned salt
1 Tbsp Black pepper, ground fine
Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl.
Toss to combine all the ingredients, until the sugar and salt are dissolved.
Cover and refrigerate overnight (or at least three hours), tossing occasionally.
Serve and enjoy.
I’m sure that most people have tried some form of this summer salad. Cucumbers and red onion are a great combination, and the sweet and sour dressing basically pickles them. I’ve added pimento and a combination of herbs that helps to give the salad a little added depth of flavor.
