Refrigerator Cucumber Salad

We really enjoy this refrigerator cucumber salad. It makes a good-sized batch and keeps in the fridge for up to 2 months. Fresh cucumbers, onions, and peppers from your local farmer’s market makes it even better!

Refrigerator Cucumber SaladThere are several variations of this recipe around, but I like this one since it uses celery flake, which adds a really nice flavor. You could substitute fresh chopped dill instead. This salad also has a little kick. If you don’t want a kick, just leave out the red pepper flake or use slightly less than the recipe calls for. I made the salad in quart-sized jars, but you could use smaller decorative jars and give this out as a great summer gift.

You’ll also want to make my watermelon pickles.
