"This is my mom's recipe for delicious, easy-to-make pickles that are sweet and sour! They're not conventional pickles, but taste like them. Use any substitute like sliced carrots, (daikon) radish, or even fruit!"
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

English cucumber, cut into 1/4 inch slices
3/29/11: I really debated whether to review or not, especially since I plan to make these again as is, but decided to add my two cents before making this again and let pple decide whether or not to ignore me. I adjusted the amount of rice vinegar up (to approx 1/4 c) and the amount of honey down (to 1 tbsp) and I felt that imparted the right amount of tart with sweet for myself. Bf, however, was not impressed, so I'll make him the recipe as is. To be fair, I'm not a sweet pickle fan--I'll eat them (I LOVE pickles) but I love dill--the more sour and tart, the better. So, I have to say I wouldn't like the recipe as is. Bf, however, may, so I will make it again to see what he thinks. 3/30/11: I remade this dish adhering more closely to the recipe (I didn't measure--was too lazy). I felt they were too sweet for me, but bf liked them. He said they weren't too tart for him. I think what people need to know is this: he LOVES bread and butter pickles and isn't a huge fan of vinegar. I think if you have similar tastes to bf, you will like these. If you are more a dill pickle, tart fan, these won't do it for you. Thanks for the recipe!
These were ok but totally sweet and not sour at all.
I tried some delicious cucumbers in a tasty vinaigrette at a Chinese buffet and was really hoping this was the recipe, which it wasn't. Not much flavor.
