My new favorite way to eat cucumbers.
2 English cucumbers (or regular), sliced thinly
1/4 onion, sliced thinly (or use dried onion)
1/2 cup warm water
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup white vinegar
Layer the cucumbers and onion and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Dissolve the sugar in the warm water. Combine with vinegar and pour over cucumbers. Allow to marinate overnight.
