Tomatoe Cuc Salad

1 large cuc cut into half moons
2 large or 3 small tomatoes cut into wedges
1 small onion (whatever kind you have) diced small
dress with olive oil, salt and lot's of fresh ground pepper

I make big batchs of this salad because my husband always grabs the leftovers as a midnight snack!

My English grandmother always had what she called a kitchen garden. When her cucs started coming in she canned many into pickles that had to sit 3 months or more before eating. But she also made what she called icebox pickles, and they were great!

Combine:

1 C white vinegar,

2 cups sugar (I replace 1 c or sometimes all the sugar with splenda)

1 tbsp salt,

1 tbsp pickling spice or celery seed,

Combine and heat just until sugar dissolved then cool.

In a large container that will sit in your frig place:

peeled sliced cuc's,

peeled sliced Bermuda or Viadila type onions,

You can leave it at these two or add other vegies such as carrots or peppers, anything that will soak up the liquid the vegies sitting in or that you think might taste good!

Pour the cooled vinegar mixture into the container that has the cuc mixture in it, let set overnight, then enjoy!

This vinegar solution is a brine and you can just continue to add cucs and onions to it, be sure to keep it covered
