Vinegar Marinated Cucumbers is one of the easiest side dishes ever. These cucumbers are sweet, tangy, and crunchy.
During the summer months, I make this easy side dish about once a week. It is so simple and so good! These cucumbers are cool and crunchy with tons of flavor. They make a great side dish for a BBQ or potluck.

You can start marinating these cucumbers in the vinegar mixture for up to a day ahead of time. Any longer than that and they won’t be as crunchy.
Store any leftover cucumbers in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. However, after about a day they start to lose some of their crunch.
