Make this delicious marinated cucumber salad recipe and keep it in the refrigerator for days. A great side dish or snack, and remember, you can eat an unlimited amount on our CardioMender, MD Weight Loss program.

Marinated Cucumbers Part of a Healthy Diet


  • 5 medium cucumbers, peeled
  • 1 large Vidalia onion
  • 2 Tbsp minced garlic
  • ½ tsp MortonTMLite Salt
  • ½ tsp pepper
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 16 oz bottle of apple cider vinegar


  • Slice the cucumbers into 1/8 inch-thick disks.
  • Slice the onion into rings as thinly as possible, then cut the rings crossways in half to make
  • Transfer to a frozen large glass mixing bowl.
  • Add the garlic, salt, pepper and olive oil.
  • Add as much vinegar as necessary to almost cover the cucumbers. (Note: This will be quite tart; if you prefer a milder taste, you may wish to dilute the vinegar by half with water before adding to the mixture. However, this will make the cucumbers less crisp.)
  • Mix and adjust salt and pepper to taste.
  • Chill in refrigerator at least 2 hours.

This is a convenient dish to keep in the refrigerator. It keeps for days and I replenish it with cucumbers and onions using the same marinade. I find marinated cucumber salad prepared this way very satisfying for those late night munchies. The vinegar may make you cough a bit but the taste is worth it!

This is a free selection.
