I used to call my mother ever year in the summer for a recipe on how much of what to put with cucumbers onions and I know it has vinegar in it but don't know how much or what else it has in it but now that she's passed,I thought maybe someone here might know. Thank you in advance for any reply.
sweet and sour----equal parts water-- vinegar --sugar -----if you like onions ...add more if you only have 2 cukes 1/3 cup each ......party bowl -use cup of each
glad somebody has the proportions ... I always have to search through a bunch of recipes before I find one that works. Maybe one of these days I'll remember it.
Wow.....so happy this came up. We are in Tennessee visiting daughter and her inlaws and she got some tomatoes/cucumbers and asked if I knew the formula for this. I didn't. This all came about today, so tomorrow when she serves dinner, I will have the recipe.
The recipe I make uses vinegar (or lemon juice) and sour cream. The amount depends on how many cucumbers and onions I cut up.
I leave out the water as the vinegar pulls water from the cukes and onions. I keep a bowl of this in my fridge all summer. Will add to it a couple times before it becomes too diluted. Then it is tossed and I start a new bowl.

My mom uses M. Whip, vinegar, and sugar. She does not measure anything. Just does it to taste.
Looks like about 1 cup MW, couple Tablespoons or more vinegar and 1/4 cup sugar-- That is what it looked liked when she mixed it up. NO RECIPE.
We do both the vinegar method and the cream method. At our house we like to add some finely chopped fresh dill when we have it. Delicious!
Recipe for Cukes
My mom mixed cucumbers and onions together and poured vinegar over them. I loved it but later on after I married one of my BIL's used Italian dressing instead of the vinegar. Boy it was so much better I started using the Italian dressing and never looked back. Cucumbers, onions, tomatoes, a little pasta if you wish and Italian dressing. Let it set covered in the refrig for about a hour before serving. It's really good.
