Cucumbers and onions is a very popular dish here in Southern Illinois. I like to add peppers, also. I've also added chopped tomatoes right before serving, and that's good too!

I've been looking for a dill recipe that I believe some call half sour - it is like new dill pickles. A local sandwich shop used to serve them in little wooden barrels on the table. They were so delicious I must have made a pig of myself. They are out of business. The taste was between a wonderfully fresh cucumber and a dill pickle. I've bought all kinds of pickles but never found one that compares.

Yummy! I'm going to make a batch! Paulie's cukes are ready to pick.
We had the first ones last night.

Yep that sounds like a half sour. Since you are in FL you probably have some Jewish delis close by that are owned by retired New Yorkers. I bet they would have the pickles you are searching for!

A bknox said, it sounds like a Thai cucumber salad I make. It includes shallots and jalapenos but no garlic.

Yes, we do have some very good Jewish delis and that is the last place I ate them. They will sell them to me for $7.50 per pint, but I want lots of pints.............there must be a recipe somewhere.

do you think you could substitute Splenda for all or part of the sugar?
