Cool & Tangy Marinated Cucumbers

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!

This recipe brought back such fond memories! My grandmother would always keep cucumbers in a marinade like this for the entire growing season. Every time I came through the door I would head straight to the fridge... they are that good! Enjoy. The Test Kitchen
