Pickled Cucumbers (Salt-Free Pickles)

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by jenne

A great recipe for those living a low sodium diet. Comes from The No-Salt Cookbook. These taste wonderful and keep well in the fridge. What's better??? No one will know they are salt free! The cookbook recommends making these in a stainless steel bowl, but glass will work too. NOTE: After you have chilled down the pickled cucumbers , feel free to throw in some chunked up tomatoes which taste divine in this marinade too!

  2. Place cucumbers and onions in a stainless steel bowl large enough for all the ingredients.
  3. Put all the ingredients EXCEPT the cucumbers and onions in a saucepan and bring to a boil over high heat.
  4. Pour vinegar mixture over the cucumbers and onions; cover bowl tightly wth aluminum foil or plastic wrap and leave out on counter to cool.
