1 cup white vinegar
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon celery seeds
1/4 cup vegetable oil
5 small Kirby cucumbers, sliced (5 cups)
1 medium sweet onion, thinly sliced in rings
1 large red or yellow bell pepper, thinly sliced
Before slicing the cucumbers, score the skins vertically with a fork, but do not peel them. Try Kirby or Persian cucumbers if you can find them at your local grocery store or farmers market. They are smaller than regular cucumbers, and are very crunchy and mild in flavor. Perfect for salads!
