Marinated Cucumbers

marinated cucumbers

Summer is a wonderful thing. Sunshine, barbeques and an abundance of fresh fruits and veggies! Our grandmother is known for her garden, which is practically our own personal farmer’s market. We never leave with anything less than a giant bag of fresh produce that inspire our summer table. We recently aquired some of her beautiful, crunchy cucumbers. We thought we would put them to good use with a dish we have grown up eating at our aunt’s house (we have such a wonderfully foodie family). This side dish is light, but full of flavor. It is sweet and tangy, and incredibly refreshing. We recommend letting them marinate for a few hours, or overnight, before serving so that they can really absorb all that vinegary magic!
