  • 3 English also known as hot house cucumbers, peeled and sliced
  • 1/3 cup red onion very thinly sliced (optional)
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup apple cider or red wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 3 medium tomatoes chopped (or 2-3 cups of any tomato you like)
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh chives
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley


  • Place the cucumbers and red onion in a bowl. Whisk together the water, vinegar, sugar, salt, pepper, and oil until the sugar is dissolved. Pour over the cucumbers and onions and let sit in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes or up to 3 hours.
  • Pour off all but a few tablespoons of the liquid. Add the tomatoes and herbs and toss to combine. Serve and enjoy!
