Marinated Cucumbers

I adore the fresh foods of summer. This is one of my favorite dishes for family BBQ's and potlucks, it is so easy and quick to prepare and everyone seems to love it.

Marinated Cucumbers

2 cucumbers
red onion
white wine or apple cider vinegar
salt and pepper

Peel and slice cucumbers and onion. Combine together in a small serving bowl and barely cover with cold water. Add vinegar, I can't give you an exact amount as it varies with the size of cucumbers. I go by taste, you should be able to taste the vinegar in the water, think of pickles here, a bit of tartness. Then sprinkle liberally with salt and pepper. Let marinate in the refrigerator until time to serve, 2-3 hours. Sometimes I lay them out on a serving dish and lightly sprinkle with salt and pepper and sometimes I serve straight from the marinade.
