Using a chef's knife, cut the ends off of the cucumbers and cut in half lengthwise. From here, you can either slice into spears, or chop into rings (like a coin).
Pack the cucumbers and the red onion into a quart sized jar with the chopped dill. Add remaining seasoning spices.
In a small bowl, combine the water and vinegar together, mix well and pour into a jar. Cover tightly with a lid and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes up to 4 hours. The longer this pickles sit, the more flavor there will be.
Can be made ahead. Refrigerator pickles will keep for 2 weeks.
