Marinated Cucumber and Onion Shish Kabobs

A nice light flavor to add to any picnic or lunch. And attractive too! They are easy to make and very delicious.

You will need:
~3 cucumbers
~1 large red onion
~2 cups apple cider vinegar
~4 leaves basil, coarsely chopped
~freshly chopped black pepper
~ 3 sprigs fresh oregano
~2 Tbl.Sp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
~2 Tbl.Sp. Lemon juice

Slice the cucumber down the middle length wise, and chop into crescent chunks about 1/3 of an inch thick. Chop the onion into 1x1 inch chunks. Mix the cukes and onion into a bowel. All of the little pieces set aside. Into a blender pour the vinegar, oil, lemon juice and seasonings. Blend until mixed and add the small onion bits. Blend until smooth and pour over veggies. Let soak for three hours or chill overnight and string onto skewers. Serve chilled. I keep the marinade and use as a salad dressing, its very delicious!
