Mom's Sour Cucumbers

Friday, September 4, 2009

Looking for something to serve with the hot dogs and burgers for Labor Day weekend?  These sour cucumbers are a great addition to any barbeque feast. The best thing about them is that they can stay outside all day, unlike potato salad or macaroni salad that contains mayonnaise. This serves two but you can easily double or triple this recipe.

Mom's Sour Cucumbers

1 medium cucumber
1/4 cup red wine vinegar

Peel cucumber and slice thinly.  Layer cucumber in a medium dish, salting in between layers. Let cucumbers sit at room temperature.  Pour water off cucumbers every 10 minutes for about a half an hour.

Pour red wine vinegar over cucumber slices and stir. Cover bowl and place in refrigerator.  Let chill for at least an hour.
