If you do not wish to put in the onion you may use onion powder. Prep time is about 10 minutes. I often play with the ratio of ingredients. Sometimes I omit the oil.


  • 1 cucumber peeled and sliced
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1 small red onion, chopped
  • 3/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • Black pepper to taste


Put all ingredients into a bowl and mix. Chill the salad for two hours and serve cold.
