  1. Thanks for this quick and simple snack recipe! Do you think this is best eaten right away, or would it store well for a couple of days? Just doing my first Sunday prep and looking for quick snacks I can grab and go during the week!

    1. I think it is actually better if you let it sit! What I usually do is cut up a cucumber and put it in the ACV in a Tupperware container and take it to work. I will eat 1/2 with my morning snack and the rest with my afternoon snack. Then I do the same thing the next day. You could cut up a few at a time but just be aware that it soaks up more of the ACV so it gets stronger!

  2. I make this often (it's a Belgian staple ;p) and I always put any leftovers in the fridge for the next day or so. I think they taste even better as time goes by :)
    I usually add a bit of olive oil to the mix as well, to off-set the vinegar taste just a wee bit, but, of course, that adds oil to your diet ;p

    1. Thanks Meg! I didn't know it was a Belgian staple - how cool! We love this easy snack! :-)

  3. When I was growing up, we always added onion to the mixture, gave an added flavor boost.

  4. When I was growing up, we visited "the family farm," run by my great aunts. They always served this. I have made it for us several times.

  5. Cherry or grape tomatoes would be good to add, too!
