This isn’t farewell to Summer Salad, it’s Farewell To Summer salad. I should have just called it Pickled Onion And Cucumber Salad, but I didn’t, and I’m too lazy to go back and change it.
ANYWAY, here’s the salad:
It’s just sliced cucumbers and Mediterranean Herb feta cheese, topped with pickled red onion.
I LOVE pickled red onion, and it’s so easy to make!
You cut a red onion in half and skin it, then slice it into thin slices. Or thick slices, if you like your slices thick. You do you. Put the slices into a bowl and toss them with a little salt and a little sugar (how you like it). If you want to, add hot peppers or red pepper flakes or some herbs or spices, maybe some lime juice. Please yourself. Stuff all that into a glass jar and cover it with vinegar. I use plain vinegar, but you can use wine vinegar or apple cider vinegar or whatever.
It only takes maybe 20 minutes for the onion to pick up the pickling, but I usually leave it overnight or for a few hours.
A WRITING PROMPT FROM ME TO YOU: Write about something in a glass jar.
