I got this recipe from a neighbor many years ago. It is very simple and very good and inexpensive. They are requested all the time from family and friends.

I used this recipe last weekend but I didn't do the spears. I cut the cucumbers into slices.Except for the ones that were to big to slice so those I skinned and cut out the seeds and chunked up. We haven't tried them yet but it was so easy to do . And didn't take me 2 weeks like some other recipes.
