Eating them plain is fine or with salt, but hubby and I love them marinated. This recipe is kind of a combination of my mother in law's advice and perusing a few online.
Easy Marinated Cucumbers
1 large cucumber, sliced thin and layered in a bowl
Enough water to just cover cucumber slices1/2 cup vinegar
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp salt
* Note: We rarely use raw onions, but a lot of people slice onions in with this and maybe even tomatoes too. Alter any of the measurements to your taste. I don't like to use too much onion or garlic powder for us, and you may want more salt or sugar depending on the flavor you like. This turned out just perfect for us.
Mix it all together really well and let sit at least overnight. When you eat 'em all up, add more sliced cucumbers to the liquid for another batch!
