Cucumber Salad

This is one of my most requested summer recipes for picnics or pot lucks! It keeps well for at least 4 weeks in the fridge.

Ingredients:

  • 8 - 12 medium cucumbers* peeled, sliced thin or large dice
  • 1 cup sliced or diced onion
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 1 green or red pepper, sliced or diced

Dressing

  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 1 cup vinegar**
  • 1 tsp. celery seed

*I like to use the big English cucumbers and only partially peel them, It takes about 5 large ones.
**Vinegar choice here changes flavour, I prefer white but cider is also good.

Directions:

Mix vegetables and sprinkle with 1 Tbsp. of salt. Stir well and let stand for about 1 hour. Drain off liquid.

Mix dressing ingredients. Stir until sugar dissolves. I usually bring dressing mixture to a boil as it speeds up the process - but doesn't have to be. Pour over vegetable mixture. Cover and store in fridge.

Servings: 10
Prep Time: 15 Minutes
Cooking Time: 0 Minutes

Source: Have no idea where this came from as I have been making it for many, many years!
