I do this with apple cider vinegar and add crushed oregano to it. I keep this in my fridge all the time. It's great added to a mixed green salad or served on its own as a side dish.

My husband and I love this- with or without the onions.

This is a wonderful recipe to keep ready in the fridge--eat as a side dish, on a salad, in another recipe, great idea.

My mom used to make this all the time when I was growing up.. especially in the summer when we had plentiful cucumbers. I'll have to try it w/Splenda. I'm always looking for zero point foods that are yummy!
