Origins, variants and curiosities

This simple salad is a true gastronomic icon in the United States. It is a dish that accompanies family lunches and is often found on the table in the summer season.

You can make some changes to this classic recipe by adding grated ginger and replacing the acid note of the vinegar with that of even fresher lemon juice. This salad should rest in the refrigerator before being served, because this way it will have even more flavour, and the cold cucumbers and onions will become even more crunchy.
