Mom's Cucumber and Onions is an old fashioned recipe featuring garden vegetables. The ingredients are simple--cucumbers, onions, salt, vinegar, sugar, celery seed and black pepper, but the finished result is the perfect accompaniment to any summer meal.
Add peeled and sliced cucumbers and onions to a bowl; sprinkle with salt.
Cover mixture with water and stir; let sit for approximately for 20 - 30 minutes (up to 1 hour).
Drain the water. Add vinegar, sugar, celery seed and black pepper; stir.
Allow to marinate before eating. These will get better as they sit in the refrigerator.
