Grandma's Cucumber and Onion Salad

Recipe by  

"Both of my grandmothers made this salad every summer when their gardens produced baskets of cucumbers. It's a cool, fresh side dish for any meal. One of my grandmas omitted the green pepper and the celery seed. She also put ice in it to chill it quickly and cut the vinegar taste."

I love this salad! I don't care for celery seed though, so the only thing I did differently was to swap it out for a little bit of fresh dill. So easy, so yummy!

I made this for a carry in dinner at work. It was very easy and everyone loved it. I cut out about a half cup of the sugar and used fresh dill instead of the celery seeds. We had a lot of food left over at our dinner but none of the cucumber salad was left!

Very good! I read the other reviews and did the same on the sugar, cut it back a half cup. Perfect!
