Refrigerator Pickles

I'm back on a diet (surprise, surprise!), and I'd bought tons of veggies, including a monster of a cucumber. Jeff won't eat them, and I'm not crazy about eating them plain, so I decided to experiment with a refrigerator pickle - no canning requiring. If I do say so myself, they are quite tasty. You can adjust the number of Splenda packets to your taste - I personally like them a little sweet.

Refrigerator Pickles

1 large cucumber, sliced as thinly as possible
1/2 c. white vinegar
3-5 splenda packets
1 tsp. celery seed
3 whole black peppercorns

Combine all ingredients in an airtight container. Seal and turn over container a few times to coat cucumber slices. Chill several hours before serving.
