Prepare cucumbers by peeling and slicing them very thin. (You can just peel part of the cucumbers making them look striped, and it's very attractive.) Slice onions and pepper. Add them to the cucumbers and sprinkle on the Tbsp. of salt, stir and set aside.
Bring vinegar, sugar, and celery seed to a boil on medium heat, stirring all the while to dissolve sugar. Cool, then pour over vegetables. Cover and refrigerate for 24 hours.
Serve as an individual salad on a bed or lettuce or ladle into canning jars and freeze until you're ready to eat them. Just defrost and serve for a fresh taste of summer.

This is an easy recipe and I have made it even easier throughout the years. This came from my mother who never measured anything. She just used her hand to measure and then made it to taste.
Feel free to switch very thinly sliced green onions for the red onions in this recipe. You can also use the dry ranch dressing mix but, since it's potent you might want to add one half teaspoon at a time to the sour cream and taste test.
Easy Peasy! Delicious while being so simple.
Since the hot weather is here, this is a cool delicious cucumber salad.
Sprinkle cucumbers with salt in a bowl and toss. Add sugar, soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, sesame oil, and toss. Sprinkle with sesame seeds, toss, marinate for 20 minutes and serve.
Another good way to use any leftover cucumbers from your garden.
We eat this yogurt salad on the side of most of our Mediterranean and Middle Eastern dishes, especially ones that include meat or rice. It's really refreshing and is great as a palate cleanser. It's really easy to throw together and has fantastic textures.
This recipe uses onions and cucumbers with apple cider vinegar. It has a wonderful, fresh taste that I like! The kids don't really like it though.
Cucumbers are a staple in our household. They are very versatile to eat and this is a favorite recipe of mine! This spicy cucumber salad makes the perfect light appetizer, snack or goes well with any rice dish.
This is easy to make. My family likes it as movie snack, and it has two vegetables.
This salad is really different. Interesting mix of the fruity flavored gelatin along with the vegetables.
Salad lovers, you will love this one, too. Put ham and cucumbers in a bowl. Prepare dressing by stirring together all ingredients.
A flexible recipe that you can make as much or as little as you want. Some people add sliced raw onions, but I do not like raw onions. This is very refreshing on a hot summer day. It keeps well and tastes better as the flavors mingle. Cucumbers are very plentiful and inexpensive this time of year. If you grown them yourself, like I do, this dish costs pennies.
Great way to use those cucumbers from the garden.
Slice cucumbers and onion. Mix other ingredients. Pour over cucumbers and onion. Chill 2-3 hours before serving.
