  • 2 English cucumbers
  • 1 red onion
  • 2 Tablespoons tarragon vinegar
  • 1 Tablespoon celery seed
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon sugar


  • Thinly slice the cucumbers and onions. If you have a mandoline, this will help you get even slices, but a sharp knife also works well.
  • Place in a large, nonreasctice bowl. Sprinkle with the celery seeds and salt.
  • In a small dish, whisk together the vinegar and sugar until the sugar dissolves. Pour over the cucumber salad; let sit 10 minutes before serving.


This salad keeps well in the refrigerator for several days.
