Marinated Cucumbers

This is a simple summer recipe that's refreshing and delicious. Bob requests it often; it reminds both of us of our grandmothers, who made it regularly with cucumbers from their own gardens. The longer it marinates, the better it tastes--up to a point, of course.

Marinated Cucumbers

3-4 large cucumbers, peeled and thinly sliced

1/2 cup white vinegar

1/4 cup cold water

3 Tablespoons sugar

1/2 teaspoon salt

Fresh ground pepper to taste

Combine all ingredients except cucumbers; stir until sugar and salt are dissolved. Pour over cucumbers in a bowl; cover and refrigerate for at least 3-4 hours. Serve cold.
