cucumber, sliced thinly (usually 3-4 cucumbers)
bell pepper, sliced thinly
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.
Add sliced peppers and onions to the cucumber mixture. Using clean hands, incorporate ingredients well.
In a separate bowl, mix sugar, celery seed, & apple cider vinegar. Stir until sugar is mostly dissolved. It will be thick.
Pour sugar mixture over the cucumber mixture. Combine well.
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!
