This is a simple and essential summer recipe, good with everything and a great addition to cold salad platters. Be sure to taste a slice of each cucumber--a bitter one can ruin the whole salad.
Put cucumber and onion in a large mixing bowl, and toss with 1 teaspoon salt and celery seeds. Let stand 30 minutes. Stir in vinegar and oil. Season with additional salt and pepper. Refrigerate until ready to serve, up to 3 days.
