Cucumbers and Onions in Vinegar


Cucumbers and onions in vinegar is a combination of  crispy cucumbers and onions in a tangy yet slightly sweet vinegar. It’s a classic summer side dish that can be made in minutes.



  • 3  medium cucumbers
  • 1 medium red onion
  • 1 tablespoon sea salt
  • 3/4  tablespoon coconut sugar
  • 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar or white wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons fresh chopped dill
  • pepper to taste


  1. with a sharp knife or mandolin slice the cucumbers and onions very thin
  2. place the onions and cucumbers into a bowl; sprinkle with 1 tablespoon sea salt and 3/4 tablespoon sugar and mix well
  3. set the mixture aside for at least one hour to allow the cucumbers to release water
  4. add the vinegar and stir – adjust the salad with salt, pepper and sugar to taste
  5. top them with fresh dill


  • Red onions can be substituted with vadilia onions.
  • Change up the vinegar, replace the apple cider vinegar with red or white vinegar
  • The cucumbers should release enough water to dilute the vinegar, if you need to adjust the taste, add a few tablespoons of water.
