Sweet Cucumber & Onion Salad

Also known by some people as Icebox or Refrigerator Pickles.  You can make these and eat them the same day.

1/2 gallon cucumbers, sliced
1 large sliced onions
2 cups vinegar
2 cups sugar
a generous pinch of salt & pepper

Sice cucumbers and onions very thin and put in a large bowl.  Cover with cool salt water.  Heat the remaining ingredients until dissolved and almost boiling.  Drain cucumbers.  Pour hot sauce over slices.  Let sit until cool.  Keep refrigerated.
