(by Shirley McNevich)
3 large cucumbers (peeled and sliced)
1 thinly sliced onion
1 tsp. salt
3 TBSP cider vinegar
3-4 TBSP white sugar
Enough water to cover cucumbers
Peel and slice cucumbers and place in a large bowl. Add sliced onion. Add salt. Stir so salt gets mixed in. Let it sit for 15 minutes. Pour off the juice that has accumulated. Add the sugar and vinegar. Pour enough cold water on to cover the cucumbers. Stir. (Optional--some people add 1 diced tomato and/or diced celery). Refrigerate.
