Simple and healthy is my strategy this summer.

With a brain tumor, a bad back and a full-blown case of the woe-is-me’s, I’ve come to realize that easy recipes are a necessary commodity in our house at this point in time.

There is nothing simpler than stirring together a few ingredients and then throwing them all together in the fridge to hang out together for the rest of the week.

Insert this cucumbers and vinegar recipe.

Growing up, my older brother used to make cucumbers and vinegar on a weekly basis for his anytime snack, and we always had a jar of these sweet and sour refrigerator pickles on hand at all times.

The recipe for cucumbers and vinegar couldn’t be simpler. Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Fresh cucumbers (English, pickling, or standard)
  • Vinegar
  • Water
  • Honey
  • Sea Salt
  • Cracked Black Pepper
  • Sliced sweet onion (optional)
  • Fresh Dill & Parsley (optional)

Summertime is the perfect time of year to make a vinegar and cucumber recipe such as this because let’s face it, who doesn’t have an overabundance of cucumbers growing in their gardens right now?!?

Many of the old-fashioned southern recipes call for white sugar, which you can totally use, but I prefer honey in mine because I feel it gives them more depth of flavor.

Turn these plain jane cucumbers and vinegar into an elegant marinated cucumber salad by adding sliced sweet onions, garden tomatoes, and chopped fresh herbs like dill and parsley.

The possibilities are truly endless.

For the Cucumbers and Vinegar:


  • In an extra large mason jar or plastic container, whisk together vinegar, water, honey, salt & pepper until all dissolved.
  • Add in cucumber slices and allow to marinate for at least 2-3 hours before serving, but overnight is better.
  • Keep in the fridge and snack on them all week long. If desired, you can reuse the vinegar for another batch of cucumbers at the end of the week.

    How long do they stay for in the fridge? I’ve made it about 2 weeks ago, (cucumbers only, no herbs or onion), and I wanted to use the leftovers for sandwiches tomorrow. Is it still safe to eat?

      As long as they’re kept in an air tight container, they can stay good for up to 2 months. They may loose a little crispness though!
