Mom's Cucumbers & Onions

Now, my mom's a little bit leery about some of my vegan concoctions.  She still loves to call my seitan "satan." Well, little did she know one of her favorite summer dishes is already veggi-fied. Thanks for the recipe mom! 

Mom's Pickled Cucumbers and Onions
6 c. thinly sliced cucumbers
2 onions, sliced thin
1 3/4 c. sugar
1 c. cider vinegar
2 Tbsp salt
1 tsp celery seed (optional)

1. Layer cucumbers and onion in container
2. In a separate bowl, mix together sugar, vinegar, and salt
3. Pour liquid over cucumbers and onions
4. Let soak at least 24hrs before serving

Seriously, it's not summer at my house until we've made a big batch of these.... 


  1. I just discovered your blog and I'm in love! I'm also a 'burgher who is trying to live meat and dairy free (most of the time!) I love the restaurant suggestions and recipes! Kaya has now been added to the list!

    1. Thanks so much for the kind words! You definitely have to stop at Kaya, only problem is you'll never want to eat anywhere else. Let me know what you think!


What'cha thinking?
