Cucumber and Onion Salad

This is a very easy side salad for a picnic or covered dish event. My mom kept this going in our frig all summer. I think she got the cucumbers from an aunt and uncle that had a farm nearby….

Ingredients
2 -3large cucumbers
1medium white onion
1⁄2cup sugar
1cup white vinegar
2cups water
1tablespoon pepper
salt

DIRECTIONS
You will need a 2 quart jar with lid or other 2 quart container.
Cut the ends off the cucumbers and peel along the long edge in 3-4 strips to leave a sort of stripped cucumber.
Slice the cucumber in thin rounds.
Peel and slice the onion in thin slices and separate.
Put the cucumber and onion alternately in your jar/container.
Add the rest of the ingredients and cover your jar/container tightly and gently turn so the ingredients are mixed together.
Refrigerate overnight and serve cold
