    Lol

    I've always heard them called salt pickles or refrigerator pickles.

    Basically a mixture of salt, water and vinegar (no dill) poured over sliced cucumbers and onions and left in a jar for a couple weeks.

    Hmm...I might have to give that a try. I've got a couple of pickling cucumber plants that are currently days from being ready to unload enough for 6 or 8 jars.

    They're very good.

    10 or 11 cups of water depending on how salty you like them. 1 cup of salt 1 cup of vinegar.

    Boil them together, mix them well and dump the brine over a layer of sliced onions and speared cucumbers in a mason jar.

    Let them sit in the refrigerator a couple weeks and enjoy.

    Yes but they don't wait weeks to eat them; usually just a day or two. I'll have to ask Mr. Cat if he boils the vinegar or not. I want to say he just cuts everything up, adds some vinegar and lets them sit. I don't eat them so I'm not positive of that.

    I've never heard of them with just salt. We always used sugar and celery salt in addition to the other ingredients you mention.

    I love bread and butter pickles then dill if I'm eating them by themselves. I prefer dill pickles in tuna salad. In potato salad I prefer sweet pickles. On burgers dill or bread and butter pickles.

    Any of the above, but I lean towards bread and butter.

    I've been known to make a sandwich with a crap load of bread and butter pickles, mustard and nothing else. Yum!
