Balsamic Marinated Cucumbers

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

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.  🙂

What is your favorite salad vegetable?

  1. If I had known you were serving that, I’d have been over there with an empty plate! I don’t think I’ve tried agave syrup (it sounds sweet, lol)! — Could I add tomatoes to this recipe?

What do you think?
