One of my favorite veggies…cucumbers!!! Although it’s not summertime when I can have a stash of my own from our garden…I was still hungry for one of my favorite salads. But, I decided to change it up a little from the ol’ standby of my goto vinegar, onion, and cucumber salad. Everyone has there variation on that salad…some add sugar (a lot or a little), some add oil….but me….I like it straight up….just cucumber, onion, apple cider vinegar, salt, and pepper. I could eat that by the ton, yum!!
But, today I did something a little different I wanted to share, but…..equally as easy!!
I started out the same way….sliced up my cucumbers and halved them, then doused them in apple cider vinegar. (For some reason I didn’t add onion today, but if you like onion, add that, too. I normally do and love it!)
Here’s where I changed it up….
You might have thought from the picture I added balsamic vinegar, but that isn’t it!
I added soy sauce…it works perfectly with the cucumbers!! Now, because soy sauce is already heavy in salt, I did not add additional salt to the salad. But, I did add freshly ground black pepper to finish it off.
So simple…but, not the usual cucumber onion salad. Thought you may enjoy the little twist on a classic! Give it a try and let me know what you think!
