“Sweet, yet tangy, full of flavor...this recipe just screams SUMMER to me! We make these every summer, and usually have enough to last us through the winter (this recipe makes a lot). This year, we didn't quite make it, so I can't wait to make a batch when the cukes are ready!!These are also great to have on hand when you get invited to a BBQ/party and have no time to cook something (got me out of quite a few pinches;) Using a mandolin makes the slicing much easier, and gets the slices thinner than cutting by hand.”
