This tangy, slightly spicy, slightly sweet cucumber salad can be served as a side dish or as a condiment. It would make a delicious accompaniment to hamburgers or sausage (veggie of course). Balsamic vinegar and plenty of black pepper give a new spin to the traditional summer salad recipe.
On my daily stroll through my vegetable garden this morning I noticed a cucumber peeking out of a smallish cucumber plant. I didn’t think the plant nearly ready to produce, upon looking closer I found not one but three cucumbers ready for harvest. I had some red onions in my pantry, that I had harvested in the spring, needing to be used and begging to be paired with the cucumbers.
Not being a huge fan of the traditional cucumber/red onion salad recipe that are found at many summer gatherings, I played around with vinegars and came up with a recipe that hit all the right notes for my taste buds. hope you enjoy the recipe as much as I do. If so please comment (below the recipe). I love reading your comments and they help the success of the blog. Thank you!
Looks amazing. Can’t wait to try it. Will be perfect on hot days
What would use to substitute if you didn’t have maple syrup?
