Method:

No-Cook or Other

Ingredients

7 c
cucumber, sliced thinly (usually 3-4 cucumbers)
1
onion, sliced thinly
1
bell pepper, sliced thinly
1 Tbsp
salt
1 tsp
celery seed
2 c
sugar
1 c
apple cider vinegar

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Add sliced cucumbers to a large bowl, stir in salt. Set aside while cleaning and cutting pepper and onion. Letting them sit will bring out juice that will add to the marinade.
2
Add sliced peppers and onions to the cucumber mixture. Using clean hands, incorporate ingredients well.
3
In a separate bowl, mix sugar, celery seed, & apple cider vinegar. Stir until sugar is mostly dissolved. It will be thick.
4
Pour sugar mixture over the cucumber mixture. Combine well.
5
Refrigerate overnight or at least six hours prior to serving. The salad is complete when the liquid rises to the top of the bowl.

Tip: Taste one slice from each cucumber to ensure they're not sour. One sour cucumber can ruin the whole salad!
