Cucumbers and Vidalia Onion Salad

Cucumbers and Vidalia Onion Salad is a crunchy, refreshing salad that is tossed with a sweet apple cider vinaigrette and some dill!  A delicious salad that is not only light, refreshing and very tasty, but also low in calories and low in fat!

My family was asking for a light salad with dinner, so I decided to make this one and revive it from our archives.  There's a little story about how this salad came about.

As a young teenager, I remember going to the local deli just to get a container of the cucumber and onion salad. We lived in a neighborhood where German and Italian Deli's were commonly found. This cucumber salad was so different from the typical Italian salads I always had at our house, so buying this salad at the local deli was such a refreshing treat.

This is one of those easy salad recipes you can make ahead of time, even one or two days.  It is such a great salad for any season, it's even terrific to add to any luncheon or dinner with family and friends.  Give this healthy cucumber salad a try,  I think you'll love it as much as we do!

Cucumbers and Vidalia Onion Salad
  • 2 medium Cucumbers - rinsed, sliced 1/4" thick
  • 1 large Vidalia Onion - peeled, sliced 1/4" thick
  • 1/2  cup Apple Cider Vinegar

  • 1/2 tsp. Salt
  • 1/2 tsp. Black Pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. Dill Weed

Makes about 1 and 1/2 quarts.
