Sliced Cucumber Salad

When I was younger my Grandma had a huge garden.  She grew a ton of cucumbers and make this great salad.  I have a small garden and I am a member of a CSA at my local farm and I can’t get enough cucumbers.  I’m not a big pickle eater, but I love this salad.  I put them on sandwiches and they are delicious.  These are also a great side dish for a picnic or BBQ.

I try and wait a day or 2 before eating to let the flavors soak in, but most the time I don’t make it.

Tip: I usually turn the jar over for the first few days to let the ones on top get saturated.

    These look great! they remind me of my refrigerator pickles, mostly the same ingredients but no cook! I’ll have to give it a try. We are growing cucumbers and I usually make jars and jars of fridge pickles, we can’t get enough! 🙂
