Light and fresh salads are my absolute favorite! I love it when you can taste the crunch of the vegetables and not have it weighed down by tons of creamy dressing. This apple cider vinegar cucumber salad is one of my favorites for so many reasons, but I especially love how easy it is to make and how it requires no fancy ingredients.

    I took a chance on this recipe because there were no prior reviews. A friend had given me several large cucumbers from her garden and I needed to use most of them up. Most recipes had ingredients that I didn’t have on hand, such as white distilled vinegar and fresh dill. This was refreshing and was a great accompaniment to my pulled pork sandwiches and corn on the cob.

    Cucumber and onions always say summer to me. I have been making them the same way my mother did until running across your recipe.
    The red onion and honey really take this to the next level.

    1. Wow, that’s a big compliment Mary! And SO agreed. Cucumber + onions are pure summer for me as well. Especially when those garden cucumbers start to stack up. End up eating cucumber salad for ever meal, lol.
