cjmmytunes, I just made marinated cucumber salad today.
I usually mix half rice vinegar and half water, some sugar, salt, pepper, and dill.
I used pretty close to this amount today, for one English cucumber, several radishes, and some sliced red onion:
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup rice vinegar
about 2 TBL sugar, maybe not quite that much
good pinch of kosher salt
fresh cracked pepper
about a half tsp or so of dried dill (I usually use fresh dill but I didn't have any)
I put the marinade ingredients in a mason jar with a tight fitting lid and shake it up. Added the veggies, and refrigerate for a couple of hours, turning the jar over every now and then when I think of it. lol You can easily add or decrease the amount of acid/sugar to your taste.
