5cupsthinly sliced cucumbers - about 3 English cucumbers or 4-5 regular cucumberspeeled or not - your choice
1large onionthinly sliced - I like to use sweet onions
1 ½teaspoonscanning salt - not table salt
1 ½teaspoonscelery seed
Thinly slice cucumbers and onion into a large bowl. Toss and set aside. Whisk together remaining five ingredients and add to cucumbers/onions. Toss lightly so all the cucumbers are mixed with the brine. Cover bowl and refrigerate. You can serve this right away, that's when the "pickles" taste - best but this will keep in the fridge for several weeks.
