Danish Cucumber Salad

So I didn't have enough cucumbers to can, but we make this quick "pickle" salad instead.  I found this recipe in my sister-in-law's great-grandma's cookbook, but my grandma remembers making it (her dad was Danish). 

Danish Cucumber Salad
Modified from Grandma Rose

2 cucumbers
1 tsp salt
ice cubes
1 cup vinegar
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup water
1/4 tsp dried dill (we used fresh last time)
1/4 tsp pepper

Slice cucumbers in thin slices.  Add salt and toss.  Cover with ice cubes.  Let stand at room temperature for an hour.  Combine other ingredients.  Drain dukes and add vinegar mixture.  Cover and chill overnight.
