Just excellent. I added a touch of salt but made no other changes.

Cucumbers are a fave here. Have to admit, I pickle cucumbers like this, but don't really eat them right away. Great, and joyfully delicious! I did add 1 tablespoon of kosher salt, and 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes, for a bit of a kick! Thanks, baracious~for a unique change to a favorite vegetable!

I must admit...I am guilty! I love cukes in any manner. As a matter of fact I eat at least one Kirby(pickling)cuke every day...raw, on sandwiches, in sour cream...any way you can imagine. Today I gave these a try, and they are wonderful! I often eat them sliced, tossed into vinegar,salt, and pepper. I love them just diced and mixed with cottage cheese. This just added a totally new dimension to that, but they still tasted like cucumbers(not grocery store pickles. I'll make these often as they are even better the next day, so no waste! Thanks!
