I use Polish cucumbers in brine, but dill pickles will work as well. I've used Claussen before with great success! Enjoy!!

Hi Lisa, what kind of pickles do you use in this recipe? I'm looking forward to trying Polish Vegetable Salad. I have never had it. Thank you Lisa.

So, I made this last night for lunch today. I had my parents out for Mother's Day. Anyway, it's pretty darn good. We enjoyed it. When I make this again, I am going to use a fresh carrot. The canned ones just did not add much flavor. Thanks for sharing and the apple is a nice addition, just perfect for me. Thanks!
