Marinated Cucumber Salad

April 11, 2013

Marinated cucumber salad is as delicious as it is simple.  Thinly sliced cucumber is tossed with red onion and marinated in vinegar, salt and pepper.  You can flavor this salad a hundred different ways.  This recipe leans towards Asian flavors but swap out the rice wine vinegar for red wine vinegar and fresh mint for a Mediterranean salad or add chopped fresh dill for something more Scandanavian flavored.
