Quick Cucumber Pickles With Rye Bread and Cheese

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by MamaJ

I am posting this recipe for ZWT. It is a quick and easy German side dish. It is really good to accompany a summer barbeque when cucumbers are plentiful. The original recipe is from epicurious. *Cook time is resting time for the salted cucumbers to drain.

What a great recipe! The cucumbers were crisp and sour/sweet, with a really nice kick from the mustard and horseradish. Fastest pickles I ever made!
