Mother's Cucumber Salad

After Lola's suggestions, I finally decided to check out Gooseberry Patch's weekly free recipes. They have great recipes. A new free one every week. And here is the one for this week. It sounds good. And I'm definitely going to try it out. ♥E

Mother's Cucumber Salad

3 to 4 cucumbers, peeled and thinly sliced
3 T. salt
2 t. sugar
1/2 t. onion powder
1/4 t. celery seed
1/4 t. pepper
1/4 c. cider vinegar
optional: 1/2 c. sliced red onion

Place cucumbers in a large bowl; add salt and enough water to cover. Cover and shake to mix salt. Refrigerate several hours to overnight. Drain cucumbers, but do not rinse; return to bowl. Stir together sugar, onion powder, celery seed, pepper and vinegar; mix well. Pour vinegar mixture over top of cucumbers. Add onion, if desired. Cover and shake gently to mix. Serves 6.
