Cuke Salad at the Cabin

We just finished a week at the family cabin in northern Minnesota. The boys love spending time at the cabin. This trip was filled with card games, tubing, campfires, and canoe rides. Oh, and simple, delicious food, of course. No other words necessary. I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves…

    Cuke Salad
    2 medium cucumbers
    1 large onion
    1 cup vinegar
    1/2 cup water
    3/4 cup white sugar

    Start by prepping the cukes and onions. Slice cukes and onions thinly and layer in a glass dish. When finished, mix vinegar, water, and sugar in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and pour over cukes and onions. Cover and refrigerate for at least a few hours before serving.
