For Easter I wanted something different than potato salad as a side for our ham. All the members of my family (except my son) like cucumbers. So I decided on a tangy Balsamic marinade.
Balsamic Marinated Cucumbers
- 2 large cucumbers, thinly sliced
- 1 medium onion, thinly sliced
- 3 Tbsp. Balsamic vinegar
- 3 Tbsp. Olive Oil
- 1/2 tsp. Dijon mustard (I like course ground)
- 1/2 tsp. agave syrup
- Salt & Pepper to taste
In a small bowl, whisk together vinegar, mustard and agave syrup. Slowly add oil while continuing to whisk. Toss dressing with cucumbers and onion. Refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight. You could substitute 1/2 tsp. sugar or Stevia sweetener for the agave syrup if you don’t have it.
So, I made this for Easter…and then forgot to serve it! It was delicious the next day though. 🙂
