Recipe by Tandy Higgins

This is a great way to use up all those cucumbers during the summer. I love the onions and peppers as well as the pickles themselves. Great to put on your grilled hamburgers! I use my food processor to speed things up. These taste very much like the pickles that my husbands grandmother, Tura Higgins, used to make.
