Absolutely THE best version of the recipe out there! The secret ingredient is vinegar, it smooths out the bumps and adds a little "zing". Whatever you do, do NOT substitute miracle whip for mayo, even if you hate mayo, because it will not taste the same. This is good on burgers, chicken nuggets, hash browns, french fries, pretty much anything you would put mayo & ketchup on.
This recipe came from my mother-in law's neighbor, Chuck. We were visiting her in Wisconsin and Chuck brought this over one afternoon for us to enjoy with our dinner. It was so good that after dinner I knocked on his door and asked for the recipe -- which he was kind enough to share. My family calls this "The Pickle" because it reminds us of homemade bread and butter pickles, only better. :)
Cooking time is actually cooling time in the fridge.
This is a sweet cucumber pickle. These pickles stay crisp for up to a year in the freezer. They are so easy to make and very good. I have just defrosted a bag (pictured here) after 8 months in the freezer and they are still as crisp as the day I made them.
