Ever stare for a few minutes at the super market spice rack and wonder what all those intriguing bottles can do for your food? Since I love to experiment with unfamiliar flavors, I've bought plenty of those bottles and sprinkled them on lots of dishes. He's one salad that benefits beautifully from a sprinkle of celery seed and lemon pepper.

3 cups thinly sliced unpeeled cucumbers
1/2 cup thinly sliced onion
Sugar substitute equal to 1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup white vinegar
1/2 teaspoon celery seed
1/4 teaspoon lemon pepper

In a medium bowl, combine cucumbers and onion. In a small bowl, combine sugar substitute, vinegar, celery seed, and lemon pepper. Add dressing mixture to cucumber mixture. Mix gently to combine. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Gently stir again just before serving.

Serves 4 (1 scant cup) - each serving equals:
