Smashed Cucumber Salad with Lemon and Celery Salt

['5 mini seedless or Persian cucumbers or 1 small English hothouse cucumber (about 12 oz.)', 'Kosher salt', '1 (3x1") strip lemon zest, very thinly sliced', '2 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice', '2 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil', '1/4 tsp. celery salt', 'plus more for serving']

Gently smash cucumbers with a rolling pin or the back of a heavy knife just to break open. Tear into irregular 2" pieces and place in a medium bowl; season lightly with salt. Let sit at least 5 minutes and up to 1 hour.
Meanwhile, whisk lemon zest, lemon juice, oil, and 1/4 tsp. celery salt in a medium bowl to combine; season dressing with salt.
Drain cucumbers, discarding any liquid they have released. Add to bowl with dressing and toss several times to coat. Sprinkle with more celery salt.
