This is a fabulous salad and will be great to serve during hot weather.
I found cucumbers on sale 3 for 1.00 so I made this for the shelter. I will give you the recipe in which you use 4 cucumbers.
Bring 2 cups of white vinegar and 1-1/2 cups of sugar to a boil along with 1 tablespoon of salt, 1 teaspoon of celery seeds and 1 teaspoon of red pepper flakes. Boil it until the sugar dissolves then turn off the heat.
Throw in 2 cups of ice cubes and let them melt.
Thinly slice 4 cucumbers, 1 large red onion and 1 large green pepper.
Pack them tightly in a jar.
Pour the liquid over them and close the jar. These will keep for a couple months in the fridge. I tucked in some garlic cloves and fresh dill as well.
