Meganr’s Cucumber Salad

The BEST kind of cucumbers for this recipe are Armenian.  The next best are those long English style hot house cucumbers. The worst are the squishy regular ones and in fact don't bother if that's all you have. Get a great cucumber and make a great salad!

English Hot House Cucumber
Meganr’s Cucumber Salad

4 big cucumbers
½ Sweet Onion (such as Vidalia or Walla Walla)
1 red bell pepper
2 T rice vinegar
1 t thyme
Optional: red pepper flakes to taste


Peel and thinly slice rounds of cucumber.  You can cut them in half if you want so you have smaller half-moon pieces. 

Thinly slice the onion - as thin as you can get it.

Thinly slice the red bell pepper into rounds and then cut the rounds in half.

Place the veggies in a bowl and add the rice vinegar – Meganr does not measure this. She just adds 3-4 hearty splashes.

Add the thyme OR if you prefer some perkiness, red pepper flakes. 

Toss gently and serve.
