Fire and Ice Salad

This is a refreshing and easy salad that tastes alot like bread and butter pickles.

Fire and Ice Salad4 medium tomatoes, chopped
1 medium green pepper, sliced
1 small jalapeno, minced
1 medium onion, thinly sliced (opt.)
3/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup sugar
1-1/2 tsp mustard seed
1-1/2 tsp celery seed
1 tsp salt
3-4 drops hot pepper sauce
2-3 medium cucumbers, sliced
In a large bowl, combine tomatoes, green pepper, jalapeno, and optional onion; set aside. Combine the next seven ingredients in a saucepan; bring to a boil and boil for 1 minute. Pour over vegetables. Let stand until mixture comes to room temperature. Stir in cucumbers. Refrigerate for 2 hours or overnight. (This is actually better the next day).
Yield: 8-10 servings
