I love those recipes that we all grew up with, they are just too good to miss out on.
7 cups sliced cucumber
salt, as needed
1 cup sliced onion
1 cup chopped green pepper (optional)
2 cups of sugar
1 cup of white vinegar
1 Cup celeery seeds (optional)
2 tbsp. salt
Place the cucumber in a colander and sprinkle generously with salt; leave to drain for 15 minutes. Rinse and wring out.
In a bowl, combine the cucumber with the onion and bell pepper.
Whisk the sugar with the vinegar, celery seeds and 2 tbsp. salt, until blended. Pour on salad also toss sweetly.
