My Grandma always used to make these and they're awesome. I could never find the recipe that had just the right amount of each ingredient. Through a lot of years of trial and error, I finally found the formula! Enjoy!

These marinated cucumbers are surprisingly tasty! They remind us of bread and butter pickles. The marinade has the right mix between tangy and sweet. This recipe is a classic summertime favorite. Great as a cookout side dish or a snack.
