how do you keep sliced cucumbers crisp?

I am making a tray of fresh salad veggies. I have grape tomatoes, sliced green pepper, broc, cauli, and green beans.

I also put some celery sticks in ice water.

I am afraid that my cucumbers are not going to stay crisp unless I put them in vinegar or sour cream. Is this true?

Please help.

AJ

Truthfully, I've never had any luck keeping cucumbers crisp. I hope someone knows the trick and will post here.

Don't know for sure, but maybe ice water will work for the cucumbers like it does for the celery.

Per Martha Stewart

To make freshly cut cucumber slices extra crispy, arrange them in a colander placed inside a bowl. Sprinkle lightly with salt, cover with ice cubes, and refrigerate for 1 hour. Pat cucumbers dry with paper towels before using.
