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!

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.
