This is a old family recipe. My great aunt Hazel has been making these for a very long time. They are just wonderful. My mom uses a little of both.
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup vinegar
- 2 tablespoons salt
- 6 cups sliced cucumbers
- 6 small onions, sliced
- 1 red pepper (or green bell pepper what ever kind you like)
- 1 cup celery
- Mix and stir the first three ingredients till disolved.
- Then mix the rest and add the sugar/vinegar mixture and let rest 10 minites.
Wow! Is all I can say. As a kid I hated what we used to call "Cucumber salad" Im not sure if it is the way you made it or what but its soooo yummy! I used Apple Cider Vinegar myself, because its what I had on hand. With the sugar though, it was really tasty! I only added peeled and sliced cucumbers and diced onions. Still turned out really good. Thanks so much for sharing!
I made these yesterday and chilled them in the fridge and they tasted wonderfully refreshing, sweet, and crisp! Great for the hot summer days of August! I froze the rest for my DD`s engagement party which is in 12 days. So I`ll be back to let you know how they are when defrosted!
The recipe as written was much too sweet for our tastes, even though I only used 1 1/2 cups of sugar. I added 2 more cucumbers and another 1/2 cup of vinegar to balance it out.
