Quick Easy Cucumber Salad

On a hot summer night I want to put a meal together quick and yet maintain a healthy balance of protein and vegetables. A quick, easy, tasty and refreshing cucumber salad will balance the juicy steak or burgers you have as a main course.




  1. Slice the cucumber in half and then in slices. Slice the onion/shallots in thin slices. Mix cucumber and onions in a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Mix white vinegar, water, sugar in a small bowl. Pour over the cucumbers and onions, and stir well.
  3. Sprinkle some fresh chopped dill or basil and stir. Chopped Chives can be a nice addition also.)
