Marinated Cucumbers

Easy, quick, and yummy! I sometimes throw in tomato wedges and a splash of olive oil at the last minute; don't let the tomatoes sit in the vinaigrette long. I think this salad is best within 24 hours.

Marinated Cucumbers
From Better Homes and Gardens New Cookbook, 11th edition

1 large cucumber, halved lengthwise and thinly sliced (~3 cups)
1 small sweet onion, thinly sliced

Combine marinade ingredients in covered container and add cucumber and onion. Toss to coat. Cover and chill for 2 hours and up to 5 days.
