Favorite Cucumbers

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by KGCOOK

I got this recipe from a friend long ago. It's very tasty and easy to make. I find it a nice change from the typical vinegar and sugar. Peel or not to peel cucumbers is your choice. No cook time. I use light taste and color olive oil.

Nothing states summer more then fresh veggies (cucumbers - yum!) in vinegar, sugar, and salt. I have a bowl of these going in my fridge mostly all summer long, but this time - I put in a jar, shook as stated then let sit ....LOVELY! I used fresh carrots from the garden instead of peppers since that was abundantly growing. Will make these often and totally love them!
