Fresh Cucumber and Vinegar Salad

FRESH CUCUMBERS AND VINEGAR SALAD

This is one of my all time favorites. You can seal this in a plastic container and add to the mixture each day. The longer the cucumbers and onions set in the vinegar the more they take on the flavor. You can add tomatoes, carrots, and even bell pepper to this mixture to give it a different flavor. This makes a wonderful salad and snack anytime of the day.

Ingredients:

  • 6 cups cucumbers peeled and sliced thin
  • 1 cup sweet pepper, sliced thin
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp celery seed
  • 2 cups sugar (I  use 1 1/2 works fine)
  • 1 cup white vinegar

Prepare:

Mix well. Put in refigerator, let stand over night
