Fire and Ice Salad

3/4 cup white vinegar 
1 1/2 teaspoon mustard seed 
1/4 teaspoon salt 
1/8 teaspoon red pepper (ground) or to taste, start with a pinch
1/4 cup cold water 
1 1/2 teaspoon celery salt 
1/4 teaspoon salt 
4 1/2 teaspoon sugar 
1/8 teaspoon black pepper 

6 tomatoes peeled and quartered (fresh summer tomatoes is the best; 
they MUST be peeled - boil in water for a few minutes and skin comes right off) 
1 green pepper sliced in strips 
1 cucumber sliced 
1 red onion, sliced 

Bring first 9 ingredients to a boil and boil for 1 minute. 
Allow to cool slightly and then pour over veggies and chill. 

Note: This is a GREAT summer time salad. 
You actually can add any kind of vegetable - squash, carrots, etc.
