Notes

  • I prefer my cucumbers peeled, but feel free to leave the peel on if that's what you prefer. English cucumbers have a thin skin while regular garden cucumbers are more waxy skinned.
  • Slice both cucumbers and onions thin.
  • White vinegar works great but try changing it up with rice vinegar or white wine vinegar.
  • Dill would be an awesome substitute for tarragon, if desired.
