Easy Vinegar Marinated Cucumbers (Cucumber Salad)

These Easy Vinegar Marinated Cucumbers are a light, refreshing, summertime side dish. Add regular or cherry tomatoes to make it a delicious cucumber salad!
Our mom would often make these vinegar marinated cucumbers when we were growing up. I love the crisp, cold cucumbers in the sweet and tangy vinegar dressing. They are a great, light side dish for BBQs or potlucks. You can serve immediately or store in the fridge to eat later (see notes below).
