Cucumbers Sliced

large bowl

2 medium cucumbers; thinly sliced
1 medium onion; thinly sliced
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
3/4 cups cold water
1 1/2 cups cider vinegar

Wash your cucumbers. Slice the cucumbers thin. Lay them neatly in a large bowl or canning jar. Sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper. Next, add a layer of thin sliced onions. Repeat the process until all the cucumbers and onions have been used. Mix the vinegar and water together and gently poor over the cucumber mix. Cover and chill in the refrigerator. Good for up to three days.

Tidbit: General Ulysses S. Grant ate cucumbers every morning with his breakfast.
