Cucumbers either in vinegar or creamed is a dish we must have every summer in my household.  This vegetable is a very rewarding garden crop.  My family likes them raw, creamed, in vinegar and preserved as pickles.  Basically any way you make them we’ll eat them.

Cucumbers in Vinegar - The Southern Lady Cooks

VINEGAR RECIPE

This is a favorite way to fix this vegetable in the South. My family loves them.  My mother used to make them this way when I was a child.  So easy and simple but so good with any meal.

2 to 3 medium sized cucumbers, peeled

1 medium onion, sliced

1/4 cup white vinegar (can add more or less)

3 or 4 cups water (enough to cover cucumbers in bowl)

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

1 teaspoon salt

Peel and slice cucumbers in a bowl. Slice onions and break into rings. Add remaining ingredients. Refrigerate for several hours before serving.  Will keep for several days in the fridge.   Enjoy!

(Note: I have tried adding other spices, etc. to the water but my family likes them this way only.)

 
 
 

 CREAMED RECIPE

1 large onion, peeled and sliced into rings

1 tablespoon sugar

1/2 cup sour cream

1/2 cup salad dressing or mayonnaise

1/4 teaspoon dill

Slice cucumbers and onion into a bowl.  Mix other ingredients separately and whisk together.  Pour over cucumbers and onions. Refrigerate for several hours.  Enjoy!
