How do you make marinated cucumber salad?

I’m looking for a recipe that uses onions and vinegar. There is also one that uses sour cream. I’m looking for a few variations.

    juice left from your favorite pickles, dill, sweet or bread n butter works really well

    slice the peeled cukes and layer them with thinly sliced onions into the pickle juice.

    or blend the cider vinegar half n half with water and layer the cukes and onions in it.

    blend sour cream with tarragon, chives, cilantro, and put the cukes and onions from the pickle juice or vinegar water in and allow to marinate for about an hour in fridge.

    I like to dice up a quarter onion, peel and slice the number of cucumbers you want to marinate, a cup of white vinegar a table spoon of sugar and a teaspoon of salt to 2 cups water. Adjust vinegar to taste and may be reused if kept in the fridge for a couple batches. I typically will almost double that amount of vinegar but that is my taste.

    Sliced Cucumbers, Sliced Onions and Wedged Tomatoes (put as much of each as you like). Marinated them in a mixture of White Vinegar, Juice from Half a Lemon, Italian Spices (fresh is better, but use whatever you have, even if it’s the dry pre-mix you buy in a shaker), Black Pepper and a dash of Salt.

    the simplest way is equal parts sugar and apple cider vinegar …salt and pepper to taste…use it over again if you like or on regular salads. I’m telling you you won’t believe how good!

    This one doesn’t use vinegar. 2 or 3 cukes, sliced and as much diced onion as you wish. I use a whole small to mediium onion. Pour ranch dressing over all and mix. Add 3 Tablespoons of chopped dill. Chill for at least one hour.

    I alway wing the proportions but don’t use nearly as much liquid as the other recipes here.
    –Thinly sliced cucumbers
    –Thinly sliced onions (red onions look pretty) – enough to complement, not overpower
    –Thinly sliced radishes – a few for color especially if you don’t have red onion, or skip it
    –Plain yogurt – to coat the vegetables
    –White vinegar or apple cider vinegar – something with some bite
    –white sugar
    –salt and pepper
    –tons of chopped fresh mint – the mint isn’t necessary at all, but if you have it and can use it, it makes a super refreshing, different salad.

    This doesn’t have vinegar in it, but this is how my grandma taught me to make cucumber salad: Peel and slice 2 cucumbers, slice half an onion, add a couple Tbsp of mayo, stir real good, add about half cup milk, some pepper, mix.
