I’d posted this Easy Refrigerator Pickles recipe a very long time ago. While I was making a new batch of pickles, my husband recommended I repost the recipe.

We would add them to a green salad or make homemade pickles. What ever the form or use I always loved the crisp cool taste of a fresh cucumber.
