    Need recipe

    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.

    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.
    Make it a scrappy happy day!

    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.

    Never regret. If it's good, it's wonderful. If it's bad, it's experience.

    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.

    My kids loved the vinegar/sugar/salt/pepper recipe on cucumbers without the onions. One son enjoyed it so much he used to beg to drink the vinegar after the cucumbers were done. I must have put too much sugar in it!!!--HaHa

    Hi.....have any of you tried Newman's balsamic vinegar and olive oil?? The best! I also use about equal parts vinegar and water, with a touch of salt, for the cucumbers/tomatoes/onion concoction! Don't usually put sugar in it, but will try that suggestion.

    I grew up in an Amish area. We put a little celery seed in the mix and you can add a touch of sugar. Good luck!

    A way to fix cucumbers. Use rice vinegar a little sweetner and some ginger if you like. The rice vinegar is milder and you do not need to use water. Also just sprinkle the vinegar over them, not soak them in it. They stay nice and crisp for a couple of days.

    Our family recipe calls for 1 cup sugar, 1/2 cup cider vinegar and 1/2 cup water. We heat it to completely dissolve the sugar then let it come to room temperature. We like the English, no seed cucumber sliced thin with an onion sliced thin as well. While the vinegar mixture is cooling we lightly salt the cucumbers then drain liquid off when vinegar mixture is cooled. When cool the vinegar mixture is stirred into the cucumbers. At this point you may or may not add diced, fresh tomatoes...we like the little Italian tomatoes . You may use more than 1 cucumber if they are not large

    My hubby uses equal parts Vinegar and water. Then slices up Walla Walla sweet onions Or Vidalia sweet onions and cukes and lets them soak covered with the solution at least overnight. He sometimes uses Rice wine Vinegar instead of white vinegar to "Mix it up" a bit. My Dad used to make this also when I was a child and nor he or my hubby add sugar.
    Lack of planning on your part does NOT nessessitate an emergency on my part.
    Faith :-D

    My mom did just the vinegar and ice water - let the onions and cucumbers soak for several hours. My FIL said they were the same his mother made. The Walla Walla sweets or Vidallia onions really make it to die for. Neither my husband nor my daughters like it - so very rare when I make it. We used to have a German restaurant that would serve it. Yum!

    Thanks for posting. My husb was just asking me for a recipe to cream cukes and onions. I didn't have a clue. Now he can take his choice!
