Cucumber-and-onion salad for a snack on Meatless Monday

Categories: Meatless Monday

No one's saying you have to go meatless just because it's Monday -- but as incentive to join the growing movement, every week we're offering an animal-free recipe.

My grandma seemed to always have a big bowl of cucumbers and onions to munch on. Crunchy and salty-savory like potatoes -- but without the grease and fat -- this is an easy side dish, appetizer or snack.

You will need:

4-5 cucumbers (English if you don't want to de-seed them)
1 onion
1/4 cup sugar
1 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
water
salt to taste
celery seeds to taste

1. In a large glass bowl, dissolve the sugar in about two cups of water.

Occasionally stir as you prep the rest of your food, until all the sugar granules are gone.

2. Peel the cucumbers (optional).

I'm surprised you used table salt.

It was good enough for Grandma, so I have no problem using it :).
