   Peel cucumbers, slice very thin. Place in a deep bowl and salt. Cover with
   a dish and weight down and let stand for 1 hour. Drain off juice and press
   cucumber slices between paper towels to dry as much as possible.
   
   Mix water, vinegar, sugar and optional fresh chopped dill in a glass or
   plastic bowl. Add cucumbers and onions. Cover and marinate at room
   temperature for 1 hour, then refrigerate for up to 2 to 3 hours. These are
   best served the same day so they retain their crispness.
   
   Marinade can be adjusted to taste more or less vinegar, water and sugar.
