Have a lot of cucumbers from your garden? Make sure you try thus Cucumber And Onion Salad With Apple Cider Vinegar And Olives. If you don’t have any veggies in your garden, just like me – get a cucumber from the store and make this easy, light, flavorful and colorful summer salad.

I know creamy cucumber salads, where the dressing is made with yogurt are popular and everyone loves them. They are good! But I personally am a fan of non-creamy cucumber salads, where the dressing os made with olive oil and apple cider vinegar.

Less calories, lighter, crunchier salad. This is why I love cucumbers!

I’m not going to argue, cucumbers have almost no flavor. They are fresh, but taste like water. This is why we need to combine them with other, more flavorful veggies, like onions. Purple onions go perfectly with cucumbers.
