Vinegar, sugar, salt and onion add gentle, versatile flavor to this quick-and-easy cucumber salad recipe. All it takes is a few extra minutes of marination time to soften the bite of the onions and help the tangy seasonings infuse every bite of cucumber. Pair the salad with grilled hot dogs in summertime, or serve as a cool contrast to roast chicken in colder months.
